The project comes at a time when residents of the camp are in dire need of aid due to lukewarm response to their needs from international aid agencies, Hebaa Director Mohammad Selim told KUNA. He expressed gratitude for Kuwaiti Amir, government and people, as well as everybody who contributed to the campaign. It is an annual tradition that Kuwait hands out dozens of tons of sacrifices’ meat to IDPs and needy people in Kurdistan region.
