The "Kuwait is by your side" campaign's aid included cooking gas cylinders, cooking tools, blankets, and other necessary supplies for displaced families from districts of Haifan, Habshi Mountain, Mafalees, and Gabeeta in Taiz city, the Kuwaiti-Yemeni Relief Agency said in a press statement Thursday.
For his part, Alwan Al-Aateri, Director-General of Tur Al-Bahah district, expressed his gratitude to the Kuwaiti campaign for its care and interest in the displaced Yemeni families and persons, and its shelter aid that will alleviate their suffering in light of ongoing military confrontations by the district's borders.
The campaign had distributed relief items to many Yemeni several provinces of the war-troubled country. It aims at securing necessities to more than 50,000 Yemenis -- at a cost of USD 4.5 million.
