Queen Rania of Jordan attends charity event in Kuwait for Palestine Schools

[14/December/2010]



KUWAIT, Dec 14 (Saba) -- Arab Woman Forum held a charity event Tuesday to support the initiative of Palestine Schools, attended by Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan and Head of the Honorary Delegation and Chairwoman of the Voluntary Work Center Sheikha Amthal Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).

At the opening speech, Queen Rania appreciated endeavors of the Kuwaiti women in fields of education and labor, as well as improving education in occupied Jerusalem.
She said the Schools of Palestine were launched last April and the Arab Woman Forum was also created to support the two schools "and to make the biggest change in the shortest possible time." Queen Rania called for supporting the Palestinian people in providing good education to confront future challenges.

She said she knew very well that Kuwaitis, men and women, appreciated importance of education "and this is how I was raised in Kuwait and its schools.

"I lived in a country (Kuwait) keen on providing quality education for its youth ... therefore you are the best to know the meaning of depriving children from their basic needs ... You see how dreams and ambitions of your children grow hand in hand with education development ...," she added.

She said she was looking forward to living up to "our responsibilities towards Al-Quds and its people ... because the identity of Al-Quds is the responsibility of every Arab and every Muslim."
