With a lot of pride, the people of Kuwait celebrated the fifth anniversary of the UN honoring of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah as a ‘Humanitarian Leader’ and of Kuwait as a ‘Humanitarian Center’.
The UN gesture came in recognition of Kuwait’s outstanding and unique contributions under the wise leadership of His Highness the Amir. The well-deserved international honoring was a crowning of Kuwait’s long history of humanitarian, benevolent and altruistic activities in different world countries.
On September 9, 2014, then-secretary general of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon held a special function at the UN headquarters in New York to express the UN and the international community’s appreciation for His Highness the Amir and Kuwait’s generosity and kindness.
The UN move came as Kuwait had shown exemplary humanitarian leadership in supporting global humanitarian and relief operations under the compassionate and passionate leadership of His Highness the Amir.
