It is known that Kuwaiti nationals are provided with subsidised food necessities through cooperative societies ranging from rice, bread, oil and chicken, and all these products are found to be exchanged generally through their domestic workers to other expatriates.
And many people are regularly using these products for their daily consumption and many times are also packed away to their home countries. May be it is given away to help and support the needy domestic workers.
