He said KRCS volunteers were ready to deliver the relief aid to the Palestinian health ministry officials to be distributed in Gaza, in coordination with Egyptian authorities at Rafah crossing. A KRCS field team is currently in the city of Aresh in Egypt, working with Kuwait embassy officials and the Egyptian Red Crescent Society to ensure the safe delivery of the relief aid.
