First federation for expat NGOs launched
The federation hopes to strengthen relations between all communities living in Bahrain by engaging them in activities, and providing its members with assistance dealing with healthcare, accommodation, work permits, travel bans or the legal rights of workers. The organization will represent its members in conferences and other events in Gulf, Arab and International countries.
It will also further organize and coordinate activities between its member associations and work to resolve disputes that arise between them, in addition to expressing opinions on topics referred by the Ministry related to member associations.
“We are pleased with this initiative brought forward by members of our expat community. Bahrain is a very diverse society and expats play an integral part in our development. This federation will help them consolidate their interests to the benefit of all,” a government official, said.
