KHARTOUM, Jan 30 (KUNA) -- Volunteers of Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRSC) Friday distributed humanitarian supplies for hundreds of refugees from South Sudan who fled the conflict in their country to Southern Sudan.

Relief supplies were distributed to tens of families, whose needs were previously determined in coordination with the Sudanese Red Crescent, said Khaled Al-Mutairi, KRSC's Crises Management Coordinator.

He told KUNA the volunteers distributed cleaning materials, kitchenware, blankets and dates. Al-Mutairi said KRSC's humanitarian campaign in Southern Sudan was aimed at distributing 77 tons of aid in 10 areas in Sudan, most of them affected by floods.

He hoped the aid would alleviate suffering of people in need. (end) hhi.bs
