Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

A United Na­tions Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion ex­tolled Kuwaiti women’s dili­gent ef­forts to­wards phil­an­thropic causes, which rep­re­sents Kuwait’s firm com­mit­ment to hu­man­i­tar­ian en­deav­ors all across the globe.

In a speech to open a char­i­ta­ble bazaar in the head­quar­ters of the UN’s Food and Agri­cul­ture Or­ga­ni­za­tion (FAO) yes­ter­day in Rome, with par­tic­i­pa­tion of the Kuwaiti Am­bas­sador to Rome’s wife Dr Sara Al-Rakyan, head of the as­so­ci­a­tion Dima Kashour noted that such events help boost aware­ness on the mis­ery of the needy. More­over, she spoke of women’s con­tri­bu­tions in the field of char­ity work to help out women, chil­dren, dis­abled peo­ple and other hap­less seg­ments of so­ci­ety.

Rakyan said that she is proud to be a mem­ber of such a prom­i­nent as­so­ci­a­tion, whose ef­forts to mit­i­gate the suf­fer­ing of chil­dren world­wide has been well-chron­i­cled. She also un­der­scored the bazaar as the lat­est in a string of events put to­gether by the as­so­ci­a­tion to pro­mote cul­tural har­mony and co-ex­is­tence, adding that her par­tic­i­pa­tion in this event is a tes­ta­ment to Kuwait’s sup­port of hu­man­i­tar­ian causes. — KUNA
