The Red Crescent Society said today, Friday, that it continued its support and support for the families affected by the Beirut Port explosion, which occurred on August 4, by distributing relief supplies and needs to a thousand affected families in the city.

The head of the Kuwaiti Red Crescent mission to Lebanon, Dr. Musaed Al-Enezi, affirmed that the association will continue to help families, by providing the necessary supplies that enable them to cope with the situation that has arisen due to damage to their homes.

He pointed out that the field team of the Association, present in the affected areas in Beirut, communicates directly with the families there and gets acquainted with their needs, in order to later provide and distribute them to them.

He said that the association “is currently cooperating with the Lebanese Red Cross and in coordination with the Embassy of the State of Kuwait in Lebanon, distributing blankets and foodstuffs to a thousand families in an attempt to alleviate the great suffering that families bear as a result of the destruction of their homes.”

In turn, a number of affected family members praised the quality and method of support provided by the Kuwaiti Red Crescent, and praised the importance of direct distribution of needs to those affected.

The General Directorate of the Internal Security Forces in Lebanon last month estimated the number of damaged homes at 3,972 buildings and 4,214 cars. Immediately after the port explosion, the State of Kuwait formed the first relief airlift to support Lebanon, during which 18 aircraft from the Kuwaiti Air Force transported an estimated 820 tons of medical, health and food needs
