"Kuwait By Your Side" .. Two years of continuous aid for Yemen

RIYADH, Dec 18 (KUNA) -- Since December of 2015, the "Kuwait By Your Side" campaign had been providing non-stop relief aid and humanitarian support to the Yemeni people after the war there crippled the country.
The campaign issued a report from its headquarters in Aden, Yemen, recounting two years of humanitarian efforts.
Despite the ongoing war as well as the huge natural and logistic obstacles, the campaign managed to deliver necessities in addition to food and water to the most devastated areas in Yemen.
The campaign distributed a sum of USD 100 million worth of relief aid and materials in three phases with each costing USD 17, USD 23, USD 53 millions respectively.
The current chair of the 'Kuwait By Your Side' campaign Raed Ibrahim said that the past two years saw the campaign aiding well-off Yemenis as well as the poor, affirming that the current situation in Yemen had left everyone affected.
In coordination with the legitimate Yemeni government in Aden, the campaign focused its efforts in providing water, education, health, refuge, and food.
The campaign was launched by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah as part of various Kuwaiti groups providing relief aid to war-stricken Yemen. (end) mdm.gta
