ISTANBUL, April 19 (KUNA) -- The State of Kuwait has opened three prosthetics' centers in the Turkish cities of Istanbul, Sanliurfa and Hatay to aid Syrian refugees who lost limbs or other organs in the ongoing war in their homeland.
Ibrahim Ahmad Al-Saleh, General Director of Al-Zakat (Alms) House, said in a statement to the State of Kuwait Television and Kuwait News Agency (KUNA), on Wednesday, that the Kuwait Medical Center for Prosthesis was opened in the three cities as a result of generosity of Kuwaiti citizens who contributed with financial allocations to relieve the Syrians refugees of some of their hardships.
His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, designated by the UN as the Humanitarian Leader, and the Kuwaiti Government, support all projects aimed at serving those in need.
Ghassan Al-Zawawi, the State of Kuwait Ambassador to Turkey, praised in a statement during inauguration of the center the efforts that have been put to ensure such a vital humanitarian accomplishment.
Bulent Yildirim, the head of the Turkish HH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, expressed in a statement to the two Kuwaiti media outlets his heartfelt appreciation for granting such vital aid to the refugees.
"Such noble and eternal stances by the Kuwaiti people, charities and architect and leader of humanitarian action in the world, His Highness the Amir, will go down in history with bright letters," Yildirim said.
The centers will secure 1,000 prostheses in two years as of beginning operations.
The Kuwaiti Alms House is one of the national apparatuses that work for addressing the humanitarian message of His Highness the Amir to those in need in various corners of the world. Among those relieved with Kuwaiti contributions was the Syrian child Abdul-Basset, who was shown on television in aftermath of a recent barrel bomb attack in Syria's Idlib. He appeared trying to sit up, his legs blown off, and screaming "Daddy, pick me up!" (end) to.rk
