BEIRUT, June 30 (KUNA) -- The Kuwait Red Crescent Society has launched a month-long Ramadan breakfast programme for some 30,000 Syrian refugees across Lebanon.
The programme aims to feed Syrian refugees in northern (Tripoli), southern (Sidon) and eastern (Beqaa) cities, KRCS mission in Lebanon chief Musaed Al-Enezi told KUNA.
The meals, which offer full nutritional value, will be handed out to the refugees on a day-to-day basis starting on the first day of Ramadan, which began on Sunday, June 29.
KRCS is also preparing to launch its Eid Clothing programme, which aims to benefit 1,000 Syrian families in the northern cities of Akkar and Tripoli.
The aid organisation, along with many other Kuwaiti counterparts, has been working extensively in Lebanon since the outbreak of the Syrian crisis in 2011, and continues to operate its two main Loaf of Bread and Dialysis programmes.
Among the other Kuwaiti aid and relief organisations are Bait Al Zakat, the International Islamic Charity Organisation and the Social Reform Association. (end)
