Elaborating, the diplomatic attache Al-Menaifi warned against ramifications of mushrooming crises on the world stage, affecting the livelihood of millions of people who are coerced to bear multiple social and humanitarian hardships — particularly suffered by millions of children.
The State of Kuwait, she said, appeals to the international community and agencies and the civil society to provide protection for civilians, particularly the children. “And we call on parties of conflicts in any spot of the world to allow delivery of humanitarian aid to the civilians,” said Al-Menaifi. She affirmed the State of Kuwait’s keenness to support people who suffer from strife and urged the concerned UN agencies to alleviate suffering among the children.
At home, the Kuwaiti authorities have enacted legislation for safeguarding the family in general and the child in particular, she said, noting the establishment of the family court and enacting a special law for safeguarding children’s rights in 2015. Al-Menaifi re-affirmed Kuwait’s resolve to enhance the child rights, support efforts by states and organizations to protect children, namely their rights and dignity, and establish “a world suitable for the children.” (KUNA)
