British official praises His Highness Amir's humanitarian role
British Minister of State for International Development Desmond Swayne lauded His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah as a humanitarian leader who has transformed Kuwait into an international hub for humanitarian giving.
 
Swayne expressed his appreciation, in a statement to (KUNA) Sunday, for planned participation of His Highness the Amir and the accompanying official delegation at the Fourth Syria Donors Conference, due in London on Thursday, to support the humanitarian situation in the war-stricken country in cooperation with Britain, Norway, Germany and United Nations leaders.
 
He recalled the significant role played by Kuwait for hosting the three previous conferences at this level, noting that the resulting commitments have contributed to alleviation of the humanitarian crisis in Syria and its neighboring countries.
 
The British official urged the international community to contribute generously to avoid last year's problems when the United Nations World Food Program announced that it will limit the services provided to refugees due to lack of financial support.
 
He also called on the participants in the London conference to ensure that all children and young people, affected by the conflict, have sustainable access to safe, qualitative and relevant educational opportunities during the 2016/2017 academic year.
 
"The UK has committed more than آ£1.1 (sterling pounds) billion in aid for the region," he added, noting that Britain is doing its moral duty in terms of funding the refugees to alleviate their humanitarian suffering.
 
Kuwait hosted the previous three donation conferences to support the humanitarian situation in Syria, gathering pledges of more than USD 7.7 billion, of them USD 1.3 billion by Kuwait.
