In a speech opening the 14th meeting of the general assembly of the International Islamic Charitable Organization, Acting Prime Minister and Interior Minister and Acting Minister of Awqaf and Justice Affairs Sheikh Mohammad Khalid Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said that Kuwait has garnered in recent times a reputation for being at the forefront of any endeavor to help people everywhere who may have fallen on unfortunate circumstances and need someone to lift them up.

This reputation has resulted in the UN secretary general Ban Ki-Moon describing His Highess the Amir of Kuwait as "The Amir of Humanity." Moreover the Arab Family Organization has awarded HH the Amir its accolade for supporting humanitarian causes worldwide, said Sheik Mohammad.

He furthermore extolled the work of all Kuwaiti charities that have extended their services to numerous villages in Turkey and Jordan and to many Syrian refugees in these two countries.
