Social Affairs Ministry embarks on comprehensive rotation plan

The Ministry of Social Affairs is undertaking a comprehensive rotation of the majority of its staff, including managers, supervisors, and department heads across all sectors.

Al-Jarida has learned that this action follows the Civil Service Commission’s decision to lift the freeze on appointments, promotions, transfers, and assignments in all government entities, which was issued in December 2023.

According to sources within the ministry, Abdulaziz Sari, the Acting Undersecretary, has instructed all assistant undersecretaries to develop a comprehensive rotation plan for their respective sectors and submit it for review in the near future. Subsequently, transfer and assignment decisions will be made with the aim of rejuvenating the workforce and promoting the efficiency of operations.

In another development, Minister of Social Affairs, Family, and Childhood Affairs, Sheikh Firas Al-Malik, has reaffirmed the ministry’s commitment to supporting and serving Kuwaiti families receiving social assistance, as well as expanding family units that play a vital role in society.

This commitment was emphasized during the inauguration of a family unit in the West Abdullah Al-Mubarak region, attended by Dr. Khaled Al-Ajmi, Assistant Undersecretary for the Social Development Sector. Minister Al-Malik announced that social assistance for March will be distributed before the start of Ramadan, and assistance for April will be distributed before Eid Al-Fitr.

He praised the efforts of ministry employees in delivering top-notch services to citizens, in line with the directives of the political leadership and the Council of Ministers.

During the event, Minister Al-Malik engaged with residents of the West Abdullah Al-Mubarak region, listening to their concerns and directing relevant departments to address and resolve them promptly. He reiterated the ministry’s commitment to prioritizing the interests, welfare, and service of citizens. Additionally, he inspected the multi-purpose hall of the ministry at the Government Headquarters Mall in the West Abdullah Al-Mubarak area, assessing the arrangements, equipment, and readiness to serve the public efficiently.

Minister Al-Malik underscored the ministry’s dedication to overcoming obstacles in charitable and advocacy work, highlighting Kuwait’s generosity and humanitarian efforts both domestically and internationally. He received a delegation from the Committee for Introducing Islam, led by Director General Ammar Al-Kandari, praising the committee’s endeavors in promoting community and religious initiatives under the ministry’s auspices.

Al-Kandari commended the ministry’s efforts in fostering successful charitable and advocacy endeavors, emphasizing the committee’s role as a cultural bridge between Kuwaiti society and diverse nationalities, contributing to cultural awareness and understanding of societal norms and traditions.
