In April 1996, UNHCR Chief of Mission, signed a framework for cooperation and consultation between UNHCR and the Government of Kuwait, with the aim to provide international protection to refugees and other persons who fall within the UNHCR mandate.
Since hosting the first international humanitarian pledging conference on Syria in 2013, Kuwait has stepped up its engagement to mobilize support for humanitarian emergencies in the Middle East in particular from its neighbours. In 2014, The Secretary General recognized the country as an International Humanitarian Centre and H.H. the Amir as a ‘Humanitarian Leader”
UNHCR enjoys a strong and strategic partnership with the State of Kuwait, with ongoing engagement with the Kuwaiti leadership and key government entities and ministries along with it’s private sector.
Support UNHCR today,
Your gift provides clean water, food, shelter and protection to vulnerable refugee families who are living without a provider: widows, orphans and the elderly.
Today, every Sadaqah or Zakat donation means the difference between a hungry child and a table of food; between a family on the streets and a mother able to provide warmth and shelter to her children; between an orphan alone and a gift for every child this winter… Every gift is the difference between hope and despair for a refugee family in desperate need.
From Syria to Iraq, Yemen to the Rohingya, your support allows us to reach those who have nowhere else to turn.
By donating 10 KWD you can secure 1 person of the most vulnerable for 1 month.
