UNHCR would like to congratulate H.H the Amir of the State of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah AlAhmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and the Kuwaiti people on the occasion of National and Liberation days. On this occasion, UNHCR would like to reiterate its appreciation for the leading humanitarian role that the State of Kuwait is undertaking under the able leadership of HH the Amir of the State of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah in response to the growing humanitarian crises around the world and in the region. The State of Kuwait contributed greatly to the humanitarian situation in the region by hosting 3 international pledging conferences for Syria crisis in addition to co-chairing two other conferences and mobilizing donors in the nine Top Donors meetings.

These important conferences and follow-up mechanisms helped in aiding millions of refugees and internally displaced individuals. With the unprecedented growing number of refugees and displaced people around the world, amounting to over 65.5 million individuals, this leading humanitarian role of the State of Kuwait continues to be of crucial importance to the international community and to UNHCR. The role that the State of Kuwait is undertaking in the fields of conflict resolutions, prevention, mediation and hosting peace talks, and reconstruction conferences is further confirming Kuwait’s role as a catalyst for peace and security in the region, and internationally as a non-permanent member at the Security Council for the term 2018-2019.

DR. HANAN HAMDAN

Head of UNHCR Office, Kuwait
