MANAMA: Representatives of Gulf Arab Red Crescent Societies, including Kuwait, gathered for talks yesterday focusing to bolster humanitarian aid across some of the world's most impoverished regions. Kuwait is committed to continue delivering "humanitarian and relief" aid to needy people all over the globe, its Red Crescent public relations chief Khaled Al-Zaid said on the sidelines of the talks, citing the COVID pandemic as among the primary topics during the talks.

He listed some of Kuwait Red Crescent Society's most notable acts of benevolence as the COVID pandemic raged on, which ran the gamut from food aid to airport transportation services, in addition to meeting the daily needs of those hardest hit by the outbreak. The talks are tantamount to a "thank you message" to all those who have contributed towards humanitarian work across the Gulf Arab region, according to Bahrain Red Crescent Society secretary general Mubarak Al-Hadi. - KUNA
