KUWAIT CITY(IAMINKUWAIT): The Ministry of Finance settled about KD 680 million from custody accounts within nine months, specifi cally since the beginning of April last year, reports Alrai daily quoting sources.

Sources denied rumors on the increasing fi gures in custody accounts and diffi culties in the settlement process, affi rming that everything is proceeding well.

Sources added most custody account settlements carried out in the last period were that of the Defense Ministry.

Meanwhile, Head of Injuries and Foot Diabetes Clinic at Jahra Hospital Dr Huda Al-Dabib has rejected the idea of amputation for diabetic patients suffering from foot ulcer, reports Alrai daily.

Al-Dabib affi rmed she succeeded in treating such patients by strictly following treatment rules and instructions such as controlling sugar level and regular checkups.

In her interview with the daily, she pointed out it takes months for her to treat diabetic patients with foot ulcer as she is keen on avoiding amputation. She saved hundreds of patients whose doctors in and outside Kuwait recommended amputation. She added that she and her nursing staff treated more than 10,000 patients in 2018 in her two clinics – Al-Masaeil Clinic and the one in Jahra Hospital.

She also stressed the need to establish centers specialized in the treatment of diabetes in all governorates to serve 420,000 diabetes patients in the country.

Furthermore, Director of Enterprises Monitoring Department in Kuwait Authority for Partnership Projects (KAPP) Eng Aseel Al-Tabtabaei said the authority is waiting for Cabinet to approve the mechanism for distributing the shares of First Alzour Company to citizens in accordance with the law mandating the government to establish the distribution mechanism, reports Al-Anba daily.

Al-Tabtabaei told the daily that the authority will invite citizens, whose subscriptions are carried out by the authority on their behalf, to pay a nominal fee for the shares allocated to them.

She affi rmed such projects are implemented based on the partnership system which contributes to reducing risks for the State.
