KSrelief Delivers 25 Tons of Dates to World Food Program in Tanzania

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) delivered 25 tons of dates to the World Food Program in the Federal Republic of Tanzania, reported Saudi Press Agency.

The World Food Program signed a memorandum of receipt of the shipment from the Center in preparation for its distribution to beneficiaries in the refugee camp in Kigoma, Tanzania.

The Saudi Ambassador to Tanzania Yahya bin Ahmed Akish explained that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has implemented 6,916 humanitarian, developmental and charitable projects in 169 countries around the world with a value exceeding 108 billion US dollars.

He said that the Saudi government ordered the establishment of KSrelief in 2015 to be a leading center for relief and humanitarian work, and to convey the Kingdom’s values to the world. He noted that the World Food Program is a strategic partner of the centre.


The representative of the World Food Program in Tanzania, Sarah Gordon Gibson thanked the Kingdom, represented by KSrelief, for its great and continuous support for the program’s humanitarian activities around the world.

Last March, KSrelief launched a project in Brasília to distribute 100 tons of Saudi dates in Brazil and its neighboring countries, in collaboration with the Federation of Muslim Associations of Brazil (FAMBRAS).

The project will distribute 100 tons of dates to the most needy in 20 Brazilian states, in addition to 12 other countries in South America and Central America. These countries include Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Guyana, El Salvador, and Guatemala.
