Kuwaiti Sheikh giving away millions

A WEALTHY senior member of Kuwait's ruling family on Tuesday announced a donation of 60 million dinars ($207 million) to help those in debt, those getting married and the learned elite.

Chief of the National Guard Sheikh Salem al-Ali al-Sabah, in his 80s, said in a statement that the donation would go towards helping those in debt, men who plan to get married and those who complete their doctorates.
