Al-dousari said that the Ministry has offered temporary shelter to afflicted domestic personnel depending on the specifications allotted in this regard.

As for cancellation of sponsorship system, he said that the recent decision to establish a Pubic Authority for Manpower, is good, which will handle matters relating to the personnel in private and oil sectors.

Meanwhile, the Assistant Director for Development and Information at Kuwait Municipality, Eng. Ahmad Al-Manfouhi, when inaugurating the training program organized for employees to run the automated system of renewing health licenses, he said that the training program will help employees in dealing with any issues they may face when managing their duties.

He further said that the automated system for renewing licenses will enable the Surveillance sector affiliated to the Municipality to ensure that all its branches in all governorates are using the new system.

The training program will actually guide the employees about how they could work with the system and familiarize them to renew licenses and other related tasks.
