BEIRUT, Feb 12 (KUNA) -- Kuwaiti relief teams handed over necessities to 400 Syrian families in Lebanon's northernmost region Akkar, said Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) on Friday. Nabil Bouftain, head of the KRCS' field team, told Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that food rations and detergents were given to the refugees in Al-Abde town, located in Akkar, northeast of the port city Tripoli. Kuwaitis, wholeheartedly, are aiding the Syrian brothers in hope of soothing their suffering, Bouftain has re-affirmed.

KRCS' teams have been delivering relief supplies to the Syrians in Lebanon, almost on daily basis, undeterred by hard winter weather conditions. They have reached the refugees in remote regions of the country.

The Kuwaiti aid is being delivered as part of the "winter warm campaign 2016," securing basic needs for thousands of the refugees, whose number in Lebanon is estimated at more than one million. The continuous Kuwait humanitarian assistance includes distribution of bread and medical support and treatment. (end) mah.maa.rk
