KUWAIT, Sept 20 (KUNA) -- The State of Kuwait has opened a housing project in Mongolia for the victims of Mongolia's Baynigolin province floods, said a statement Wednesday.
In the Muslim majority Bayingolin province, the USD 274,538 Fareej Al-Kuwait (Kuwait's neighborhood) project was opened in the presence of Kuwaiti Ambassador to Mongolia Khaled Al-Fadhli.
In a statement by the Kuwaiti Embassy, Ambassador Al-Fadhli said that the project consisted of 35 housing units, a Mosque, a medical facility, and a recreational park for children.
He affirmed that the project was in line with His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah directives to provide aid to those who are in need around the globe.
Reflecting Mongolia's gratitude towards Kuwait, Bolormaa Nordov, Secretary General, Mongolian Red Cross Society, thanked the GCC nation's for its generous efforts, affirming that the victims of the floods were grateful for this support.
