The German Ambassador to Kuwait H.E. Karl Bergner hosted a ceremony at his residence on 12 November to present the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany to Soumeya Al-Azem, a philanthropist, and an activist based in Kuwait, and expressed his deepest appreciation for her notable endeavors.

The award was presented on behalf of the Federal President Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier in recognition of her services to Germany and her assistance in improving relations between Germany and Kuwait. Ms. Al-Azem is President of the ‘German Speaking Ladies of Kuwait’ for over 12 years, an organization that supports the German community in Kuwait, and has helped organize charity events such as the famous ‘Advent market’ and the ‘Maifest’. She has also founded a charity to help Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
