KHARTOUM, July 2 (KUNA) -- Kuwaiti Ambassador to Sudan Talal Al-Hajeri on Wednesday delivered a financial donation made by Kuwait to the International University of Africa for providing Ramadan meals to students.

The donation, amassed by state charity Zakat House, was delivered to the university's deputy president for administrative and finance affairs Hatem Othman.
