CAIRO: The activities of the Humanitarian Appeal Conference to Support Gaza were launched in Cairo on Thursday with the participation of the State of Kuwait, with the aim of coordinating efforts related to responding to the repercussions of the war launched by Zionist occupation forces on the Gaza Strip. The Kuwaiti Red Crescent Society participated in the conference with a delegation headed by the Society’s Secretary-General, Maha Al-Barjas, and included the Society’s Advisor, Dr Musaed Al-Enezi, and the Director of Disaster and Emergency Management, Yousef Al-Maraj.

Egyptian Minister of Social Solidarity Nevin Al-Qabbaj said in her opening speech at the conference, “Humanitarian aid through the Rafah crossing alone is not enough, as we must consider the large numbers that have become homeless. It is our role to work together to provide the basics of a decent life to the largest number of our brothers in the Gaza Strip”. She stressed that the humanitarian situation in Gaza requires concerted efforts and joint action to alleviate the suffering of the population, calling on all national societies and humanitarian organizations to actively participate in providing urgent support and assistance to the Palestinians in Gaza.

She added, “We realize that the complex and difficult situation requires a comprehensive strategy,” stressing full commitment to providing the necessary support and creating an appropriate environment for the work of national societies and humanitarian organizations. She stressed the importance of joint action in responding to the repercussions of the war on Gaza, noting that “this war witnessed a clear violation of all international conventions and the law of the International Humanitarian Commission.”

Al-Qabbaj said that Egypt attaches great importance to solidarity and coordinated action to alleviate the suffering of the brothers in Gaza. She explained that her country’s position will remain firm while unquestionably affirming the right of the Palestinian people to remain safe in their lands. – KUNA
