Al-Salam Charity to launch new relief campaign for Syria, Yemen

Kuwait’s Al-Salam Humanitarian and Charity Society new campaign “Nawaf Al-Ahmad Humanitarian Trucks” to help the Syrian and Yemeni people will kick off tomorrow and will last until February 20.

In a statement, the Society’s Director-General, Dr. Nabil Al-Aoun, said that this campaign comes to complete the “Sabah Al-Ahmad Humanitarian Trucks” campaign, which started in the past years.

More than 1,800 camps in Syria and about 1,000 camps in Yemen will benefit from the campaign, he added.

Al-Aoun noted that these camps need food, heating materials and clothes, pointing to the great success of the relief project in the past years, which assembled 206 trucks, worth about KD 6.5 million and helped more than 1.8 million beneficiaries.

This year, the campaign comes in difficult times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as the society will only accept the donation online or by bank transfers, he added.

He also noted that the Ministry of Information has allocated several radio and television programs to help promoting the campaign.
