Kuwait to host meeting of Syria's major donors May 2 - Al-Maatouq
The State of Kuwait will host the seventh meeting of Syria's major donors' on May 2 to follow up humanitarian operations inside and outside Syria, said UN Secretary General's envoy for humanitarian affairs Abdullah Al-Maatouq on Tuesday.
 
Al-Maatouq, also an advisor at the Amiri Diwan, made the remark to KUNA on the sidelines of a ceremony of inaugurating the second phase of Kuwait's "second model village" in Al-Zaatari camp for Syrian refugees in Jordan.
 
He added that the upcoming meeting will follow up resolutions taken during the fourth Syria Donors Conference, which was held in London last February to support Syrian refugees, during which a sum of USD 10 billion was pledged.
 
Kuwait, along with the UK, Germany, Norway and the UN co-hosted the Conference that brought together leaders from around the globe to raise funding critical to helping millions of people who have been impacted by the devastating crisis. Kuwait had hosted the three previous conferences.
 
On the May 2 meeting, Al-Maatouq noted it is regularly held with major donors every three months to follow up the process of expending pledges and allocate sums required to carry out humanitarian and relief projects, in addition to coordinating with UN agencies and donor countries.
 
He expected that countries and bodies which took part in the fourth conference will honor their pledges this year as donors did at the third conference hosted by Kuwait.
 
He noted that pledges of donor countries are allocated to support Syrian refugees and host countries as well, mainly Jordan and Lebanon.
 
Concerning the village, Al-Maatouq said that His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah directed the village to be fully-serviced.
 
According to some official figures, the Syrian crisis, which entered its sixth year, led to about 13.5 million either internally displaced persons or refugees.
 
As for today's event, some vivid projects, including two schools, a medical center and a mosque, at the camp were inaugurated in collaboration with the UNICEF, Jordan's Ministry of Education and the European Union.
 
The camp, which is hosting about 80,000 Syria refugees, is adjacent to the Syrian borders.
 
A number of dignitaries, including Kuwait's Ambassador to Jordan Dr. Hamad Al-Duaij, representatives of ministries of education and health and Awqaf, and the camp's officials, took part in the inauguration ceremony.
