Support for the creation of income sources was given in kind to eleven families in need in Medenine on Saturday, at the initiative of the Kuwaiti Association “Direct Assistance” in Tunisia, in coordination with the Women’s Association Ayadi Rahima. The projects concern sheep farming, sewing, embroidery, trade and handicrafts. Some 45 beneficiaries (men and women) from several regions (Medenine, Kebili, Gafsa, Siliana, Béja) benefit from this assistance programme initiated by the Kuwaiti Association active in Tunisia since 2012. Last year the association undertook maintenance work for eleven schools and plans to provide a similar programme in eight other schools throughout the regions. In Sfax, the association launched a programme for the distribution of microcredits to 3,000 families, mainly women.
On Wednesday, the Israeli occupation’s civil administration had handed out eviction notices to 16 families in the northern Jordan Valley, and another threat to stop construction of a mineral water collector. The administration gave out the eviction notices so as to hold military drills in the area named Khirbet Humsa, and will evict 85 people from their houses tomorrow, on Thursday. In the same context, IOF gave out another order to halt construction of a mineral water pool in Al-Farisiyya area, Jordan valleys, that is funded by the European Union.
