A classroom at a school in Armenia set aside especially for displaced Syrians was named in honor of Kuwait for its luminous role in humanitarian endeavors, said a statement received by KUNA on Friday.
Kuwait's ambassador to Armenia, Bassam Al-Qabandi, indicated in the statement that the classroom was officially inaugurated today in the school known as Nartos School in the Armenian capital Yerevan in a ceremony attended by, among others, Armenian minister of diaspora Hranush Hakobian and a bevy of officials from the Armenian ministry of education and from a number of NGOs.
He said that opening this classroom for displaced Syrians in Armenia came at the humanitarian behest of His Highness the Amir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and upon his instructions to the International Islamic Charitable Oraganization (IICO), chaired by Dr. Abdullah Al-Maatouq.
On this occasion, minister Hakobian applauded the fact the UN has designated Kuwait as a world humanitarian hub and has conferred the title of humanitarian leader on His Highness the Amir.
The IICO has given two grants worth USD 200,000 to displaced Syrians in Armenia which basically went toward providing them with food, medicine, and other daily necessities. The organization also provided the displaced with student grants to study in Armenian universities and colleges. The UN is going to honor His Highness the Amir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah by conferring the title of Leader of World Humanity on him in New York on September 9, 2014.
