Saudi Arabia announced that it has provided through the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) nearly $2 billion to enhance food security and nutrition in 58 countries in need.
Saudi Arabia calls on the UN to find accurate, impartial and transparent mechanisms to monitor the implementation of humanitarian actions.
The Saudi Press Agency “SPA” reported that the amount provided contributed to the implementation of 631 projects aimed at securing and distributing thousands of tons of food baskets, dates, and sacrificial meat. It also included operating bakeries, providing nutritional needs for children mothers and providing agricultural aid, benefiting millions of needy, displaced people and refugees in those countries.
