Extending a helping hand during Eid

Manama

Bahraini citizens convict- ed in financial cases will have their fines and dues

paid by “Feena Khair” campaign to help them “share the Eid joy with their families,” said His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa.

The move benefits those fea- tured on the Interior Ministry’s ‘Fael Khair’ (Person of Good- will) campaign, launched to help citizens sentenced in financial cases.

This is also the second time HH Shaikh Nasser is directing donations to ‘Fael Khair’ to help citizens, who are unable to pay their fines and dues amid the pandemic.

In June, Shaikh Nasser do- nated BD 330,000 from ‘Feena Khair’ campaign to the ‘Fael Khair’ project to help those suf- fering from financial hardships and who received court verdicts.

The aim is to “extend a help- ing hand to Bahraini citizens who reached a regretful situa- tion because of circumstances that are against their will,” said His Highness Shaikh Nasser, the Representative of His Maj- esty the King for Humanitarian

Work and Youth Affairs, Nation- al Security Advisor and Board of Trustees Chairman of the Royal Humanitarian Founda- tion (RHF).

Shaikh Nasser announced this yesterday in a directive to the Coordination and Follow-up Committee of the campaign, which should be executed in cooperation with the Interior Ministry and the Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and En- dowments.

The move also forms part of the humanitarian initiatives of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, the government, spearheaded by HRH Prime Min- ister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa and in line with the national efforts of Team Bah- rain, led by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, Dep- uty Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister.

RHF Secretary-General and Chairman of the Coordination and Follow-up Committee in charge of distributing aid in ‘Fee- na Khair’ campaign, Dr Musta- fa Al-Sayed Al-Ameen, said the directive is to pay the debts and fines of convicts featured in the lists published by the Interior Ministry on the ‘Fael Khair’ (person of Goodwill) campaign application.

“The directives embody HH Shaikh Nasser’s keenness to di- rect the donations of citizens and residents to people in need of them due to the current situ- ation,” said Dr Al-Sayed.
