MP Salwa Al-Jassar stated that the current status that the Kuwaiti economy is going through requires new laws and legislations that reinforce the role played by the private sector in developing the society and executing major projects that accomplish the government’s objectives in development. She added that she will work on achieving this objective with her fellow MPs, since the economic factor has become an important goal in people’s lives, and an indicator of the status of the Kuwaiti society. During the opening of Kuwait Finance House’s (KFH) chalets in Al-Zour area for people with special needs that cost KD 1 million, she praised KFH’s efforts in the society that covers several important sectors, such as education, health and others, which underscores its leadership. She noted that KFH has been a role model in what the private sector could do for its society, which encourages the parliament to expand its role and reinforce its fields of work. She asserted that what KFH has accomplished concerning its social role and its successes as a global Islamic banking institution is a source of pride for the Kuwaiti economy and the Kuwaiti private sector, not to mention showing that the Kuwaitis can succeed locally and globally.
KFH’s Chairman and Managing Director Bader Al-Mukhaizeem said that KFH’s social contributions is an expression of gratitude towards the society, and mentioned that it is working on other projects, such as the construction of 15 medical centers in various areas in conjunction with the Ministry of Health. He added that such efforts are intended to serve the people of special needs, in order to allow them to live normally with their peers in the society, and that further efforts will be exerted in the same field. He asserted that KFH will continue to play a significant role in the social field to assist the government in its efforts in various fields of development.
The Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor Undersecretary mentioned that KFH is the main supporter in all the efforts exerted by the ministry in charitable projects that aim to serve the largest segment of the Kuwaiti society, and that they are both working together to execute some significant projects that will be announced later upon completion.
It is worth noting that the chalets are located over a 7000 square meter area in Al-Zour, and include entertainment halls, public services, a VIP lounge, and a swimming pool. The project aims to allow people with special needs to enjoy its facilities.
