The agreements were inked by the royal court adviser and supervisor general of the KSRelief Center, Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, at the organization headquarters Tuesday.
After the signing of the agreements totaling $18.32 million, Al-Rabeeah said the projects aimed to supply food to the affected people and provide ways to look after their health needs, including surgeries in hospitals.
The new projects, he said, would also support community programs providing education and adequate security and improving living standards.
He also said the Saudi government’s interest in alleviating the sufferings of the distressed people is a noble mission according to the preaching of Islam.
Under the program, Naser Al-Naffee from the center, told Arab News that community centers will be set up to offer counseling services, provide social education, vocational training, and rehabilitation programs for women and children in collaboration with the charitable organizations with the Ihsan Relief and Development Foundation.
