KSrelief Signs Memorandum of Cooperation with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance

05/12/20

RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA: A memorandum of cooperation was signed virtually today between the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief) and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. Under this agreement, some of the winners of the “Gamers without Borders” online gaming competition donated their prize money, amounting to USD 1,339,500, to be spent towards combating the COVID-19 pandemic and protecting children around the world through the implementation of disease awareness and prevention programs. The “Gamers without Borders” competition was organized by the Saudi Arabian Federation for Electronic and Intellectual Sports (SAFEIS) to raise funds to support international organizations and bodies.

The agreement was signed by the Supervisor General of KSrelief, Dr. Abdullah Al Rabeeah, and the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Managing Director of Gavi, Mrs. Marie-Ange Saraka-Yao.

As the only authority in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia authorized to deliver the country’s external humanitarian aid, KSrelief had previously signed a memorandum of cooperation with SAFEIS, according to which the donated funds from the Gamers without Borders competition, which amounted to USD 10 million, would be allocated to combating the COVID-19 pandemic around the world.

At the signing, Dr. Al Rabeeah delivered the following remarks: “Today,” he said, “we signed a memorandum of cooperation with an international organization that has historical ties to the Kingdom. During this year, 2020, the world has faced the COVID-19 pandemic.” He added that the virus has caused death and serious illness to millions of people around the world, and has had a serious and negative effect on international health systems and the global economy.

Dr. Al Rabeeah also explained that the Kingdom has provided other assistance through KSrelief to many countries to combat the outbreak of COVID-19; for example, the Kingdom donated USD 150 million to Gavi earlier this year as part of the alliance’s efforts to limit the spread of the pandemic.

Mrs. Saraka-Yao also commented on the occasion. “This memorandum,” she said, “will strengthen our relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and will contribute to helping people with COVID-19 and preventing the (spread of the) pandemic.” She also noted that the Kingdom is at the forefront of the countries providing global humanitarian aid, a fact which has been evident throughout the COVID-19 crisis. She expressed her hope that more such agreements would be reached between Gavi and KSrelief to further strengthen their strategic partnership.
