Kuwaiti mis­sion spon­sors an­nual Moscow Win­ter Ball

Rais­ing do­na­tions for chil­dren with can­cer

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The Kuwaiti diplo­matic mis­sion in Rus­sia has spon­sored the an­nual phil­an­thropic and cel­e­bra­tory gath­er­ing, Moscow Win­ter Ball, to raise do­na­tions for fund­ing sci­en­tific re­search and sup­port­ing chil­dren suf­fer­ing from can­cer.

Ab­du­laziz Al-Ad­wani, the State of Kuwait Am­bas­sador to the Rus­sian Fed­er­a­tion, ad­dressed the gala ball, spon­sored by the Kuwaiti Em­bassy. He ex­pressed grat­i­tude to the steer­ing com­mit­tee for choos­ing the Kuwaiti mis­sion to spon­sor the fes­tive gath­er­ing, pro­ceeds of which would be al­lot­ted for the lo­cal med­i­cal cen­ters for can­cer treat­ment. The State of Kuwait of­fers aid to peo­ples in need re­gard­less of their re­li­gion or race, noted the am­bas­sador, af­firm­ing Kuwait’s ad­vo­cacy of help­ing oth­ers on strictly hu­man­i­tar­ian bases.

Kamel Ghribi, Chair­man of the GK In­vest­ment and De­vel­op­ment com­pany, the main fi­nancier of the gala, noted in re­marks to KUNA ne­ces­sity of pre­sent­ing the Arab world abroad, through “pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tions to counter the neg­a­tive im­age some quar­ters have been try­ing to draw about the Arabs, par­tic­u­larly in Europe.” Moscow Win­ter Ball has been reg­u­larly held since 18 years ago, with aim of rais­ing funds for treat­ing chil­dren’s se­ri­ous ill­nesses. The gala ball was at­tended by Arab, for­eign am­bas­sadors and di­plo­mats, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of ma­jor banks and in­dus­trial con­glom­er­ates, as well as del­e­ga­tions from jew­elry, in­sur­ance and fur com­pa­nies. Also at­tend­ing were the Sec­ond Sec­re­tary of the Kuwaiti Em­bassy, Ja­mal Al-Ri­faee, the Third Sec­re­tary Nasser Al-Ramzi and the fa­mous Kuwaiti fash­ion de­signer, Reem Al-Mislem.
