The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Kuwait organized a virtual field visit to the Malian refugee camp in (Mbera) in Mauritania to see the impact of the project funded by Zakat House, whose initiatives have contributed to supporting more than 63,000 Malian refugees during the past year. In a speech he delivered on this occasion about the charitable and humanitarian role of Zakat House with UNHCR, the Acting Director General of Zakat House Dr.. Majed Al-Azmi said that Malian refugees are almost completely dependent on international aid to survive, as many of them lack adequate food and shelter. Al-Azmi expressed the pride and pride of Zakat House in its contributions to support UNHCR’s efforts in Mauritania to protect Malian refugees, as Kuwaiti aid reached more than 63,000 Malian refugees in Mbera camp last year.
For her part, the representative of the High Commissioner to Kuwait, Nasreen Rabiean, praised, in a similar speech, the humanitarian partnership with Zakat House, indicating that this virtual field visit sheds light on the situation of financial refugees and the challenges they face in their daily lives.
She said that these Malian refugees were forced to seek refuge in neighboring countries such as Burkina Faso, Niger and Mauritania, indicating that UNHCR’s partnership with the Kuwaiti Zakat House would expand the scope of the humanitarian response to relief thousands of refugees and displaced persons and contribute to building a better future for them
