KUWAIT, May 8 (KUNA) — Through its support and diligence, Kuwait is now at the forefront of the philanthropy industry, Acting Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said on Sunday.
Those comments were made by Minister of Justice, Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Yaqoub Al-Sanea, who was speaking on behalf of Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled, at a two-day international forum on humanitarian work, entitled, “Partnership for Strength and Sustainability”.
Kuwait rightfully deserves to be an international humanitarian center, Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled said, adding that His Highness the Amir is fully deserving the title, “Humanitarian Leader, “conferred upon him by the United Nations (UN).
Kuwait, through hosting numerous conferences, has supported many conflict and disaster-stricken countries, Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled said.
Moreover, philanthropic work is tantamount to a bridge that links nations victimized by deteriorating humanitarian conditions, the Foreign Minister noted.
Humanitarian efforts will remain firm, in light of the surge in the number of refugees and the displaced, which has now surpassed 60 million people, he said. Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled also pointed out that 702 million people now live under the poverty line.
Former Sudanese President Abdulrahman Suwar Al-Dahab said that Kuwait has set a precedent for humanitarian work, noting that the country has always lent a helping hand to those less fortunate.
Continued cooperation amongst charitable organizations is of upmost significance, as a result of the growing number of obstacles facing them, Al-Dahab added.
Increased cooperation amongst those organizations is also imperative for increased development and prosperity, he added. (more) tab.nam
