KSrelief ‘only safe bridge’ to aid people abroad
RIYADH: The supervisor general of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief), Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, on Thursday inaugurated the “Learn and Contribute” campaign aimed at raising donations for needy people around the world.
He also signed a cooperation agreement with the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA).
The inauguration was attended by Abdullah Al-Ghamdi, president of SDAIA, Sheikh Abdulrahman Al-Sudais, president of the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques, and members of the Council of Senior Scholars through video conference.
Al-Rabeeah said that KSrelief is the sole entity to receive relief, charitable and humanitarian aid going abroad, whether from government or nongovernment donors.
This ensures accurate follow-up, and the highest governance and transparency standards to ensure the delivery of aid to those most in need.
KSrelief has carried out 1,556 relief projects worth more than $5 billion, benefitting more than 513 million people around the world. The projects were implemented by KSrelief directly or through its partners in targeted countries.
Al-Rabeeah said that the center is the only safe bridge to aid people abroad.
He added that donors have the right to define the projects they wish to carry out and the partners they trust. Donations are fully allocated to the determined project, without deducting any administrative fees.
