  Two Kuwaiti aid planes carrying 20 tonnes of food, medicine and tents to Somalia
humanitarian voice - 2011-07-20

The worst drought that hit Somalia in 10 years

Kuwait pledges its commitment to coming to the aid of the people of Somalia at times of distress in the quickest way possible, Health Minister, Hilal Al-Sayer said Wednesday.

Kuwait has been a staunch supporter of aiding troubled nations like Somalia under the guidance of the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, the minister said in a statement.

Some two aid planes carrying 20 tonnes of food, medicine and tents are set to head out to Somalia in a days' time, he noted.

The Kuwait Red Crescent was one of the first organizations to have acted swiftly to the distress calls, he emphasized.

And, this aid will continue to arrive until living conditions for the drought victims are improved, he concluded.

Kuwait has pledged USD 10 million in aid for the Somalian people, who are suffering from malnutrition and famine as a result of the worst drought to have hit the nation in 10 years.
