In remarks to KUNA, the Director General of Al-Salam Charitable Society, Dhari Al-Baijan, said that the association has mobilized its energies and efforts to help the brothers in Palestine and it seeks to provide all necessary humanitarian supplies, especially in light of the current circumstances that the people in the Gaza Strip are experiencing.
