His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, honored by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon as "Humanitarian Leader," announced that Kuwait would double its annual contribution to the Central Emergency Response Fund (CEFR) to USD one million.

"I am pleased to announce before you, doubling our fixed annual voluntary contribution to the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to USD one million," His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad said in a speech before the ceremony.

Sheikh Sabah, highly appreciating the honoring as a "special occasion," said Kuwait, since its independence and gaining the UN membership, has followed a steady approach in its foreign policy, based essentially on humanitarian assistance to all needy countries "regardless of their geographic location, religious beliefs or ethnic origins."

This assistance is in "pursuance of its belief and conviction of the importance of international partnership, as well as the unification and activation of international efforts, aimed at the maintenance and preservation of the foundations of life, that is the human spirit," said His Highness the Amir.
