The advice from Blog Action Day is to keep this post related to the blog’s topic.  My blog is about finding an excuse to take an interesting photograph of travel, gardening and more.  I tend to steer away from debating issues and current affairs.  I do enough of that outside this arena.  However, I really wanted to join this wonderful effort and I registered with them early last month.

Whilst we are truly blessed here in Kuwait not to have absolute poverty to speak of, we do have relative poverty – a term I learnt recently.  Monthly salaries for so many people living and working in Kuwait are around 30KD.  That’s 1KD a day!  With many employers, these ridiculously low salaries are not even paid on time, nor in full.  

Please help the Blog Action Day effort by donating here.  The recommendation is a day’s income!  Please give more if you can.

    “Out of sight, out of mind,” that how poverty is dealt with lately. Love the picture too.

  1. From those to whom much is given, much is expected. The burden falls on us.

  2. i heard workers in kuwait get 20 kd monthly, sometimes they cuts from his wage to be like 3 kd. 😀 so i think there is poverty in kuwait, and the government is the responsible.

  3. Depends on the job… You’re right, I heard about 20KD.
    Government or employers? I think the latter.
