Kuwait gov’t will help owners of houses damage by floods – Official

Kuwait government will help owners of houses damaged by recent rainfall and floods return to their homes as soon as possible, a senior official said Tuesday. Mohammad Bushehri, Ministry of Electricity and Water’s Undersecretary, said the heavy rainfall and floods damaged many houses. Bushehri, head of a government team assessing damage of housing units, was speaking to Kuwait TV during a visit to Block One in Fahaheel to examine the houses damage by the floods.

“The government will take care of them,” Bushehri said in reference to the damaged residential units. The government formed yesterday a team, chaired by Minister of Social Affairs and Labor Hind Al­Sabeeh, tasked renovating houses damaged by rainfall, and to provide suitable housing until completion of renovation.

The team will also determine who was responsible for damage caused by rainfall, capitalizing from experience gained from dealing with rainfall to prevent recurrence, how to gather the rain instead of wasting it, and preparing requests for compensations for the damage caused by the rain as of next week.
