Vic Sethi a Leicester businessman who grew up in Kuwait is passionate of promoting Kuwait and the people of Kuwait. There are around 90+ Kuwaiti students studying in Leicester. He met up with them and explained them the importance of giving for good causes to local and national activities regardless of religion.
Romail Gulzar the MD of Pukaar News hosted a charity dinner for LAMP (Leicestershire Action for Mental Health Project), a voluntary organisation that specialise in the provision of mental health advocacy, information and advice services across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
The Kuwaiti Students of Leicester along with Vic Sethi donated £600 on the night. Vic has decided to work with them closely and support more charity projects making people aware of Kuwait. This was a start of the celebrations towards the upcomming Kuwait National Day Celebrations on the 25th of Feb and the Liberation day on the 26th of Feb by supporting good causes.
Vic says “while the education institutes educate students for a brighter future, I want to prepare them with understanding and knowing the importance of the social responsibility. They are the future of their country and will raise the profile of their country no matter where ever they are or will be in the future.
This is the first time the Kuwaiti Society in Leicester have been involved in charity. They are so happy and are proud or their achievements. They have decided to work with me and also support other charities where ever they can.”
“Hopefully student in other cities and of different Nations will follow this model set by the Kuwait Students in Leicester. I am very proud of them as being students they put efforts in raising the funds for good cause. They will be role models for many others”
The Kuwaiti students are great and were welcomed with great respect. Many people had seen a Kuwaiti Flag for the first time.
Kuwaiti songs were played and Kuwaiti flag was displayed during the event.
