The Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation, KF, has distributed winter aid over the last two days to 4,500 Tunisian families in Kebili and Gafsa Governorates, located in north-western and southern Tunisia.
A KF official said the aid was provided under the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, noting that it was aimed at providing assistance to the underprivileged and needy families affected by the severe cold wave that recently hit the country.
He added that the KF team had visited and distributed aid in the two governorates in cooperation with the UAE Embassy in Tunisia and the Tunisian Union of Social Solidarity. The KF team was accompanied by Mostafa bin Mousa, Governor of Gafsa, and a number of Tunisian officials who praised the foundation's humanitarian gesture.
Later, the KF team moved to Kebili Governorate and was received by the Governor, who praised the KF's initiative. Moreover, while visiting the area, the team provided aid to 2,500 needy families.
