JEDDAH: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid And Relief Center (KSRelief) continues to distribute relief and shelter aid to people affected by the aftermath of an earthquake in the city of Palu, on Sulawesi island, Indonesia.
The 7.5 magnitude quake caused some of the greatest human and material damage.
More than 2,000 people were killed by the earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent landslides and liquefaction, which struck on Sept. 28, and key services for children including schools and health centers were rendered inoperable.
The center is implementing this relief program in cooperation with the Indonesian government represented by the National Disaster Authority (BNPB).
KSRelief provided food and shelter for Baluku residents in central Sulawesi, which included 5,000 food baskets weighing 370 tons, as well as 5,000 bags containing essentials and 3,500 sleeping bags.
The aid comes within the framework of the continuous support provided by the Saudi government and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to help the affected in many countries.
