BAGHDAD, June 8 (KUNA) -- As part of "Kuwait is by your side" campaign, the United Iraqi Medical Society (UIMS) started delivering a new consignment of food relief in the holy month of Ramadan to evacuees from the conflict-ravaged Mosul city, north Iraq, on Thursday.

The assistance includes 4,000 food parcels donated by Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS), UIMS Chairman Ahmad Al-Haity said.

"A total of 750 parcels have been delivered in Al-Yarmouk district, in the western part of Mosul, and the remaining will be distributed in the coming three days.

"The delivery was supervised by Kuwait Embassy in Baghdad and the crisis management center of the Iraqi prime minister's office," he added. Al-Haity expressed gratitude to the State of Kuwait under His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, for the generous aid to the internally displaced persons in Iraq.
