KUWAIT, Jan 13 (KUNA) -- A group of Kuwaiti youth have built a wooden dhow naming it "boom of the Humanitarian Leader," to be gifted to His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.
Eight young Kuwaitis manufactured the traditional Kuwaiti ship as a tangible gesture of admiration for Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad, designated by the United Nations as Humanitarian Leader.
The handicraft work was done at Sabah Al-Ahmad Heritage Village.
They labored for two and a half months, producing the 16-meter long sea vessel and equipping it with various tools, used in pre-oil times by ancestors who had traveled to remote countries for trade and dived at sea for collecting pearls, braving various life-threatening dangers. (end) ja.rk
