Kuwait- KRCS suggests two Arab humanitarian funds
(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) ISTANBUL, Nov 5 (KUNA) -- Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) Sunday put up a proposal creating two humanitarian funds under an Arab umbrella, and pledged USD 50,000 in contributions.
This came in a statement by KRCS Chairman Hilal Al-Sayer on the sidelines of a preparatory meeting of the Organization of Arab Red Crescent and Red Cross Societies (ArabRCRC) in Turkey's resort city of Antalya.
The first fund is meant to help and support the families of missing and dead humanitarian workers, while the second fund will provide psychological and social support to children affected by crises and disasters worldwide, he said.
Al-Sayer called on all participants in the preparatory meeting of the ArabRCRC to throw much weight behind this humanitarian initiative in order to attain its noble goals.
However, the KRCS chief appreciated the ArabRCRC's efforts to unify Arab efforts and coordinate humanitarian activities with a view to resolving crises and problems in Arab countries. (end) ta.mt
