With the support of the Islamic Organization for Food Security (IOFS), Kazakhstan delivered 50 tons of humanitarian aid to earthquake-shaken Syria. The Central Asian country sent canned food, warm clothes, winter tents, beds and bedding from the state reserve. The humanitarian aid is being delivered to the city of Aleppo in four flights by the National Guard of Kazakhstan.
The IOFS Director General, Yerlan Baidaulet, on the instruction of Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, personally flew to Syria to oversee the cargo delivery.
Deputy Governor of Aleppo Abdel Qader Dawaalibi, Director of Aleppo Airport Mohammed Al-Masri, representatives of the Syrian Red Crescent Samir Shubuki, Ahmad Samoun, Anas Samaa, as well as the Ambassador of Kazakhstan to Lebanon Rasul Zhumaly took part in the ceremony of transferring appropriate assistance to the Syrian side at the Aleppo airport.
Speaking on behalf of the hosting side, the Deputy Governor of Aleppo, Abdel Kader Dawaalibi, expressed his deep gratitude to the people of Kazakhstan. According to him, the Kazakh nation, who shared the burden and extended a helping hand in difficult times, will never be forgotten.
“I want to express my deepest condolences to the families of all the earthquake victims in Syria, Turkey and other countries. Our team hopes that the situation will be resolved as soon as possible and expresses heartfelt gratitude to the brave rescuers for their hard work,” said IOFS Director General Yerlan Baidaulet.
