WARSAW: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) is participating in the 2019 Warsaw Humanitarian Exhibition (WHE).

A senior KSRelief delegation is being led by its supervisor general, Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, in the presence of the Saudi ambassador to Poland, Mohammed bin Hussain Madani. The event is sponsored by Polish President Andrzej Duda.

This year’s edition aims to discuss international humanitarian and developmental trends, business community’s participation in humanitarian efforts, establish a platform for cooperation between businesspeople and nongovernmental and public institutions, and promote private sector participation in the projects and procurement market. Among the participants are various UN bodies, the EU, the World Bank, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and Polish non-governmental organizations.

The WHE is divided into sections including logistics, communications, transportation, medical equipment, medical evacuation products, disease prevention, shelters, water technology systems, reconstruction services, security systems, agriculture, food production, seeds, fertilization systems and crop farming.

Relief activities

On Tuesday, the KSRelief continued its relief activities in flood-hit parts of Yemen’s Al-Jawf governorate. The center distributed 1,900 food baskets among the displaced families. Around 11,448 people benefited from the aid packages. 

In addition to the relief activities initiated in the wake of floods, the center is relentlessly working to provide assistance to the Yemeni people who have been affected by the war in the impoverished country. 

During the recently concluded holy month of Ramadan, the center carried out 15 projects to hand out food baskets and iftar meals in 13 Muslim countries at a total cost of $14 million.

With the objective of ensuring that no child is denied happiness during the festive occasion of Eid Al-Fitr, KSRelief entered into an agreement to distribute Eid gifts to Yemeni children.

The initiative involved distributing toys, clothing and other items to 7,590 children in four Yemeni governorates: Aden, Hadramawt, Al-Mahrah and Marib.

First pilgrims leave under Eyab initiative

  • Al-Amoudi toured the exhibition dedicated to welcome Eyab’s beneficiaries

Saudi Minister of Transport and Chairman of the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA), Dr. Nabeel Al-Amoudi, oversaw the departure of the first 

group of pilgrims under the Eyab initiative on Saturday together with GACA President Abdulhadi bin Ahmed Al-Mansouri.

Eyab seeks to improve services provided to pilgrims, with the authority aiming to enrich pilgrims’ experience at the Kingdom’s airports. It is expected to benefit 30,000 pilgrims during this year’s Hajj season.

Al-Amoudi toured the exhibition dedicated to welcome Eyab’s beneficiaries, inspected the services available and received a briefing from the initiative’s officials.

GACA started an experimental implementation of Eyab this year, aimed at pilgrims returning to Indonesia, India and Malaysia through Jeddah’s King Abdul Aziz International Airport and Madinah’s Prince Mohammed bin Abdul Aziz Airport.
