King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, has directed the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Action (KSRelief) to provide medical and preventive equipment and supplies to Malaysia as soon as possible to help the country overcome the effects of the Corona pandemic (Covid-19).
The decision was issued in response to a request made by Malaysian First Minister for Foreign Affairs Hisham Al-Din Hussein during a phone call with Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister, and Minister of Defense, Prince Muhammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz.
Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Rabiah, advisor to the Royal Court and General Supervisor of KSRelief, confirmed in a statement that the generous guidance is an affirmation of the Kingdom’s humanitarian role in the countries most affected by the Corona pandemic, as well as the depth of the two brotherly countries’ strong relations.
He stated that KSRelief assistance involves obtaining one million doses of the anti-Coronavirus vaccine, as well as medical gadgets, care and treatment devices, preventive supplies, and other medical requirements.
He also stated that to secure one million doses of an anti-Covid-19 vaccine, coordination with the Malaysian Prime Minister’s Office for Foreign Affairs will be made to expedite contracting with one of the approved international companies to supply the required quantities of vaccines directly from their factories to Malaysia.
Dr. Al-Rabiah prayed to God Almighty to protect the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and the Crown Prince, guiding them to do the right thing and to hasten the eradication of this deadly pandemic from all parts of the globe.
