This is part of the direct Kuwaiti financial contributions in addition to other financial contributions that were directed through the specialized agencies of the United Nations, Kuwaiti Ambassador to Pakistani Nassar Almutairi said in a statement to KUNA.

These donations come along with the various relief activities and the campaign by the people of Kuwait, citizens and residents in support of the flood victims of Pakistan, which exceeds the amount of USD two million that was distributed on time in the devastated areas by the Kuwait Red Crescent and NGOs, he said.
