“We have reached some regions that have been ravaged by the earthquake and examined the volume of the damage,” he said, noting that the Kuwaiti team focused at the beginning of the operation on securing shelter and food for the afflicted. The Kuwaiti associations have distributed 1,100 food parcels, and 2,200 blankets to more than 7,000 people who were affected by the disaster, he said, indicating that some of the victims lost some of their loved ones in the tragedy.

The State of Kuwait Embassy in Morocco has organized a blood donation campaign as part of the aid for victims of the recent devastating quake. The embassy said in a statement, a copy of which was obtained by KUNA on Friday, that the campaign was in response to appeals by the local authorities to donate blood and save the lives of many people injured in the fiery tremors.

Meanwhile, Meshari Al-Enezi, an official at the Kuwaiti “Al-Najat” charity indicated that the Kuwaiti groups would focus in the second phase of the operation on rebuilding houses, schools, and medical centers in the ravaged areas.
