As part of Direct Aid’s outstanding charitable work and ongoing efforts, the Turkish ship “Dream” left Shuwaikh port loaded with the largest shipment of relief supplies. The supplies, which include 4000 tons of relief items, will be transported to Somalia through the port of Mogadishu, and will be distributed to our Muslim brothers who are affected by the scourge of the Somali civil war in the country over a long time period. According to the statement issued by the Society, the shipment includes rice, sugar, lentils, cooking oil, powdered milk, dates, flour as well as clothes and water tanks.
The statement pointed out that such remarkable achievement has been achieved, thanks to Allah Almighty, through the coordination of Kuwait Women Convoys Group, which coordinates between Direct Aid and IHH. Everything which we aspired was achieved with the assistance of authorities, which contribute most effectively and play a very big role. With Kuwait Ports Authority support which plays its full part to facilitate all required procedures to complete this task, we were able to easily obtain necessary permits and select the appropriate ship dock. The authority also agrees to work 24 hours without interruption to complete loading the relief supplies, as soon as possible. As a result, the workers took only one week to finish loading.
Kuwait Flour Mills and Bakeries also transported the humanitarian aid to the Port by large fleet of trucks that did not stop during the loading process.
In addition, Agility Public Warehousing Company offers free 1500-square-foot warehouse to store supplies, to support and contribution to the great humanitarian campaign.
The representative of Kuwait Women Convoys Group said, “Dream is expected to arrive in Mogadishu within 15-20 days.”
Finally, Direct Aid thanks all those who supported this campaign, and hopes that the ship delivering supplies to Somalia arrives safely. It also called for more constructive cooperation and coordination between humanitarian and relief organizations to help all poor people in Africa.
