Going out with kids in Kuwait during the COVID-19 pandemic

By Amer Aljarrah

“COVID-19”

A health crisis that quickly turned itself into an economic crisis. To date, the novel disease has encountered more than 200 countries. [1] The pandemic has significantly affected the world’s economy, business, and social life, and Kuwait has no exception. 

Located on the northern edge of Eastern Arabia, Kuwait is a unique country in Asia, having a rich and genuine Arabic heritage. But the widespread of covid-19 has affected thousands of people in Kuwait, including children who have been forced to home study. No doubt it’s the biggest global crisis of our lifetime, and we must protect our children from the devastating impact of covid-19, but we also believe settling our little ones in the new “E-environment” is quite a challenge. The feeling of being locked up brings uncertainty and stress not only to adults but to children as well.
