Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - — KUNA

Safwat Cen­ter of Di­rect Aid So­ci­ety, which was es­tab­lished in the cap­i­tal in 2007, has been of­fer­ing healthy and ed­u­ca­tional ser­vices as well as psy­cho­log­i­cal sup­port for Benin’s peo­ple. The cen­ter’s schools are dis­tin­guished across the coun­try, they have de­vel­oped sci­en­tific lab­o­ra­to­ries, a li­brary and a hos­pi­tal which ser­vices more than 50,000 ci­ti­zens. The num­ber of male and fe­male stu­dents are 500.

In an in­ter­view yes­ter­day, the Kuwaiti Em­bassy’s diplo­matic at­tache to Benin Fa­had Al-Bathali ex­tolled the projects car­ried out by the so­ci­ety that cov­ered the coun­try’s poor­est places. He as­serted that Kuwait has been named by the UN in 2014 as a “Hu­man­i­tar­ian Cen­ter” and His High­ness the Amir as a “Hu­man­i­tar­ian Leader” for the con­tin­ued hu­man­i­tar­ian aid pro­vided to peo­ple re­gard­less of sex or re­li­gion.

Mean­while, Hu­maid Al-Ab­sodhy, di­rec­tor of the so­ci­ety’s of­fice in Benin, told KUNA that the so­ci­ety would ex­tend its projects to serve all peo­ple and help women and well as pro­vide psy­cho­log­i­cal sup­port for fe­male or­phans num­ber­ing 150. He said that there was an ex­ten­sion on Sun­day at some de­part­ments of hos­pi­tal.

The Di­rect Aid (Africa Mus­lims Com­mit­tee) started its works in 1981 as a vol­un­tar­ily non­govern­men­tal in­sti­tu­tion in­ter­est­ing in the de­vel­op­ment in the need­i­est places in Africa. It con­ducts its works in a sci­en­tific way and does not look into the in­di­vid­ual con­di­tions. It pays at­ten­tion to the ed­u­ca­tion with all its types as a ba­sic means to change the mis­er­able sit­u­a­tion peo­ple fac­ing in Africa.
