What is "KAF" ??


 I came cross this tweet :  " @UN_Women :  Our Goodwill Ambassador Nicole #Kidman is now speaking at the #Kuwait America Foundation’s benefit gala. Follow us here!"
and I asked myself , what is Kuwait America Benefits Foundation ???  i didn`t hear about it before , and to be honest I am ashamed that I don`t know about such an important organization  , mentioning  my country`s name ? 

Thanks to I found all about that foundation :

About KAF

The Kuwait-America Foundation (KAF) is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization founded in 1991. Its core mission, inspired by Kuwait’s liberation by Allied Coalition forces in the Gulf War, is to express gratitude for American sacrifice during the Gulf War, and to strengthen ties between the peoples of the United States and Kuwait.
The founding directors of the Kuwait-America Foundation are Dr. Hassan Al-Ebraheem, Mr. Fawzi Al-Sultan, and Mr. Daniel Q. Calliser, Esq., all of who were involved in the Citizens for a Free Kuwait Campaign in Washington, D.C. during the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait.
Funding for KAF’s programs comes from hundreds of Kuwaiti individuals, organizations, and corporations. All KAF events and programs communicate the sincere desire of the people of Kuwait to have a strong and lasting relationship, at a grass-roots level, with the United States and to express their commitment to the welfare of people worldwide.”
