Mogadishu — Two planes from the Kuwaiti government and carrying humanitarian aid on Friday arrived at the seaside Mogadishu amid devastating drought and famine in the horn of African nation.
The planes sent by the Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS), are carrying 40 tons of food, medicine and tents.
The aid is destined for helping the drought displaced Somalis who in the last few days have been flooding into Mogadishu because all their likelihoods decimated by the drought.
Dr. Musa'id Rashid Al Ansi, the leading official of Kuwait aid, told the media at Mogadishu airport that the people and the government of Kuwait sent this humanitarian assistance to Somalia's drought affected people.
Mr. Al Ansi said that he has handed over the aid to the Somali government to deliver the needy vulnerable people.
However, Kuwait aid to the horn of African nation was received by the national committee for drought which was recently named after the state of the drought is started to deteriorate.
Kuwait is the third Arabian country to send humanitarian aid to Somalia after United Arab Imarets and Qatar in a swift response to the UN appeal for urgent humanitarian aid to the drought-stricken Somalia.
