Official: Kuwait keen on implementing OIC resolutions on family, elderly

Undersecretary at the Ministry of Social Affairs Abdul-Aziz Al-Mutairi, Monday, assured Kuwait's aspirations towards implementing decisions related to family development as well as elderly and the special needs care.

Al-Mutairi's statement was conveyed to KUNA on the sidelines of the Second Ministerial Conference on Social Development headed by Kuwait, with the participation of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) under the slogan of "Social Justice and Community Security".

He said, "Kuwait has presented many suggestions on these topics, of which it was setting a unified apparatus linking Islamic nations to data sources and banks for the benefit of the elderly and raising awareness." Al-Muatiri also mentioned the experiences obtained by local organizations such as the friendly family project, the surrogate mother project, and the provident fund will help contribute to this endeavor alongside methods for socializing kids.

It is paramount to issue studies and revisions to better help conserve the Arab/Islamic identities and address the challenges in facing the developments of technology, in addition to placing a plan for the educational sector's curriculum, and preparing programs to ensure well-being and stable living for the communities in need. The second Ministerial Conference on Social Development is scheduled to begin tomorrow in Cairo where the Kuwaiti delegation will be headed by Minister of Social Affairs and Minister of Women and Childhood Affairs Mai Al-Baghli.
