Sheikha Awrad Jaber Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah

I don't have English transcripts for it yet, but apparently yesterday Sheikha Awrad spoke out against xenophobe MPs Safa Al-Hashem and others and their plans to eradicate Kuwait of foreign workers.  She stated (again, no transcripts, but from what I have heard) that these MPs are not working in the best interest of the Country, but for their own best personal interests (suggestion is monetary gain).

I applaud her.  Someone finally had the balls to stand up to these people!!!

Unfortunately, before today, I knew nothing about this Sheikha and I am glad that I was able to do a little research on her.

“A leading charity work activist in Kuwait . Known as the mother of bedoons since the start of her humanitarian missions in 2003, seeking fairness for this group whose members were not given the Kuwaiti citizenship . Announced donating one of her kidneys to one of the bedoon patients in celebration of the Kuwaiti organ transplant society in 2006 . One of the most well known public figure for defending the rights of non-citizens ( bedoons) . Founding member of the life foundation which is a foundation specialized in assisting terminal cancer patients especially bedoons . Hold the title of the mother of bedoons dear to her heart."
