KUWAIT, June 20 (KUNA) -- Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) called, Sunday, for supporting refugees around the world, providing them with protection, health, educational and social care.
In a statement to KUNA marking World Refugee Day, KRCS Chairman Dr. Hilal Al-Sayer, said Kuwait's contribution to helping refugees around the world was clear by responding to humanitarian crises in various parts of the world to alleviate the suffering of millions of refugees.
Assistance provided by Kuwait via governmental and non-governmental institutions confirms the importance of its role in international humanitarian work to serve refugees all over the world, he added in a statement.
KRCS works with the refugees for better living and future, especially for the Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Jordan and Rohingya in Bangladesh, Al-Sayer said.
With the increase in the number of refugees around the world, the human suffering they are experiencing exacerbated, Al-Sayer added, as he called organizations and authorities in the world to quickly establish a specialized body to spread awareness among the refugees.
