On the occasion of the start of the Holy Month of Ramadan, Her Majesty’s Ambassador Matthew Lodge, on behalf of the British Embassy, would like to send his warmest wishes to Muslims across Kuwait and the world.

On this occasion, Ambassador Matthew Lodge said:

This will be my first Ramadan in Kuwait, and I am looking forward to experiencing the tradition that it brings. I know that Ramadan is a special time for reflection, sacrifice, compassion and charity. These are important and worthy goals for all of us, irrespective of any differences we may have. I have been made to feel extremely welcome since the day I arrived in Kuwait. I am particularly excited about visiting the traditional Diwaniyas during this month and having the opportunity to meet Kuwaitis from all walks of life. I wish you all a blessed month. Ramadan Kareem.
