  • Events

Minister of Labour and Social Development, Jameel bin Mohammed Ali Humaidan,

represented Bahrain in the international conference hosted by Kuwait on the suffering of the Palestinian children in light of Israel’s violations of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The conference is being held under the patronage of HH Amir of Kuwait Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Jabir Al Sabah. It is scheduled on November 12-13, 2017 and staged by Arab League in collaboration with Kuwaiti Social Affairs and Labor Ministry.

The event is attended by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Arab League Secretary-General Ahmad Abu Al-Gheit, Arab ministers of social affairs and a group of member states’ representatives of government institutions concerned with children’s rights.

The conference sheds light on obstacles faced by the development of Palestinian child process, taking into account the Israeli occupation as a major one. It aims to come out with crucial mechanisms to overcome the same obstacles.

On the sidelines of the conference, Humaidan said Bahrain’s participation highlights its supportive stances to the just Palestinian cause and the Palestinians’ aspiration to establish an independent state. It also emphasizes Bahrain’s promotion to safeguarding child rights, chiefly the Palestinian children whose rights are constantly violated.

The conference also focuses on the Palestinian children’s reality under the international law and UN convention on child’s rights, the role of international community and NGOs in boosting the respect for Palestinian child’s rights, as well as the deteriorating educational, health and psychological conditions of the Palestinian children detained in Israeli jails.

The conference coincides with the 37th meeting of Arab Social Affairs Ministers’ Council being held in Kuwait on November 12-14, which will discuss a number of topics, including development issues and Arab child’ rights.
