‘3 branches of society to be shut down’ ‘Violating charity regulations’

KUWAIT CITY, July 19: Plans are underway to close three branches of Islah Charitable Society for violating charity regulations, reports Al-Rai daily quoting ministry sources. In the wake of recent directives issued by the Council of Ministers, the assistant undersecretary for social development in Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor Munira Al-Fadli reaffirmed that the sector follows up charitable work.  He added that restructuring of the follow-up committee for charitable activities was necessary due to the significance of charity work. She indicated “dissolution of the follow-up committee for charity activities two weeks ago was founded on the new organizational structure and mandate’’, adding the committee was in need of employee evaluation and amendment for administrational development.
Al-Fadli pointed out that the ministry is keen on developing the charity sector and ‘’there are active committees and inactive ones. In fact, some have not been holding meetings for quite some time and shake-up is imperative in every committee’’. Meanwhile, sources from the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor disclosed the follow-up of violations committed by charity organizations will not be limited to political activities only, but includes all kinds of violations related to charitable work and there is no difference in the intensity or type of violation committed.
Sources added the ministry had to restructure the follow-up committee for charitable work and headed by the ministry’s undersecretary so as to give the committee more cover than its previous status.
They pointed out that coordination will continue between the sector and Awqaf Ministry as regards distributing the charitable foundations to mosques across the governorates to ensure smooth organizing of donation during the month of Ramadan, adding the ministry will follow up any report of violations registered inside mosques that have been assigned to collect donations.
