Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs and Minister of State for Municipal Affairs Mohammad Al-Jabri stated Friday that 427 defaulters have benefited from a campaign to pay the debts of those threatened by jail for inability to pay back their debts.

In a press statement, the minister said that the campaign, themed "Let them be with us in Ramadan," was launched upon directives from the wise political leadership with a view to helping defaulting people.

The campaign, started with a donation of KD 500,000, has managed to collect KD 1.35 million for far, he pointed out, adding that the campaign would continue until the end of the holy month of Ramadan. 

Al-Jabri noted that the number of beneficiaries has increased drastically this year as only 170 people benefited from last year's edition.
