One of best in Mideast

Arab Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT CITY, April 16: The Shel­ter for Ex­pa­tri­ate Work­ers can achieve the pur­pose of its es­tab­lish­ment in the form of ac­com­mo­dat­ing work­ers who are mis­treated by their em­ploy­ers, says Deputy Di­rec­tor Gen­eral for Man­power Pro­tec­tion Af­fairs at Pub­lic Au­thor­ity for Man­power (PAM) Ab­dul­lah Al-Mutaw­tah, re­ports Al-Jarida daily.

Al-Mutaw­tah de­clared the pur­pose also in­cludes men­tal and so­cial re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of the work­ers, cur­ing them of fis­cal and men­tal dam­ages, pro­tect­ing them from forcible works and re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing the vic­tims of hu­man traf­fick­ing.

He cited in­ter­na­tional and re­gional com­men­da­tions the shel­ter has re­ceived so far from for­eign del­e­ga­tions that have vis­ited the place for on-the-spot as­sess­ment to check the way of­fi­cials are treat­ing in­mates as well as ser­vices ren­dered to them.

As re­gards the ca­pac­ity of ac­com­mo­da­tion and the num­ber of in­mates presently there, he said the shel­ter, which re­mains one of the best in the Mid­dle East can ac­com­mo­date 500 in­mates.

He ex­plained the shel­ter cur­rently ac­com­mo­dates 409 in­mates from var­i­ous na­tion­al­i­ties and pro­vides

com­pre­hen­sive ser­vices to in­mates in line with the in­ter­na­tional stan­dard.

The ser­vices in­clude feed­ing and re­cre­ation, in ad­di­tion to so­cial and men­tal re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion free of charge, while the of­fi­cials be­lieve that pro­vid­ing free es­sen­tial ameni­ties and ser­vices for the in­mates are right­ful obli­ga­tions nec­es­sary to brighten the im­age of Kuwait.

‘Good deeds pro­tect us from evil fate’. This Ha­dith of the holy prophet is no­tice­able in a hu­mane ini­tia­tive car­ried out by a cit­i­zen in An­dalous area, re­ports Al-Qabas daily. The cit­i­zen has mounted a sign board say­ing ‘Free Tea, Milk and Break­fast’ for clean­ing work­ers and sev­eral Twit­ter users have since com­mended the kind ini­tia­tive.
