Aswan, July 20 (BNA): The Kuwaiti Office for Charitable Projects in Cairo donated boats to fishermen in southern Egypt, in an initiative aimed at helping families earn bread from fishing to a large extent.
Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported that the total number of boats donated by the Kuwaiti Al-Najat Charity Association to fishermen has so far reached 48 boats at a cost of $60,000.
Sabah Al-Failakawi, Director of Human Resources at Al-Najat Charity Association, told Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that the project, called in Arabic “Boats of Sustenance”, comes in line with the continuous and fruitful cooperation between Al-Najat Association and other Kuwaiti charitable societies.
The humanitarian project primarily aims to secure a stable income for families who depend largely on fishing for sustenance.
The head of the “Sana Al-Khair” Foundation, Mustafa Zamzam, praised the cooperation between the Foundation and Al-Najat Charity Association.
Fisherman Taj Adnan, who received one of the donated boats, expressed his gratitude for this kind gesture and thanked Kuwait for helping him in his efforts to put food on the table for his family.
He said that the boat is equipped with an engine and modern fishing tools, which he expects will enable him to catch much larger amounts of fish than he is used to.
Abdel-Fadil Taha was elated that he had finally succeeded in exchanging his dilapidated boat for a new and well-equipped one.
He expressed his gratitude to the Kuwaiti office and Al-Najat Association for implementing this vital project to help fishermen who struggle to earn a living in the south.
