Kuwait City: To closely monitor the performance of Kuwaiti charity associations and their finances, Kuwaiti authorities are working on creating an automatic system to ease the process.
Kuwait arrested eight members of a group linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and handed them to Egypt, earlier this month, where they were convicted in terrorism cases.
Some members were reportedly under the sponsorship of several charity associations in Kuwait, which prompted Kuwaiti authorities to give more attention to the process of overseeing charities and the donations they collect.
“The Ministry of Social Affairs monitors the process of raising donations and domains of their spending inside Kuwait,” Hoda Al Rashed, the head of the Charity Societies at the ministry, told Kuwaiti newspaper Al Rai.
“The Foreign Ministry, meanwhile, monitors transfers of money abroad and in several cases monitors the charitable projects set up outside Kuwait,” she added.
Al Rashed explained that the ministry is currently devising an automatic system which links it directly to charities.
“It will allow checking all financial and administrative data directly between the ministry and associations. Moreover, it allows the ministry to follow societies’ annual budgets and strategic plans,” she said.
