  • And all profits made from the discarded items go to help low-income families

Mawakeb Al-Ajer is a shop in Jeddah’s Al-Khalidiyyah district that sells a variety of second-hand goods, including books, clothes, furniture, and vintage items and antiques.

It is a social, economic and environmental initiative that aims to make use of secondhand goods by selling them at relatively low prices.

It also is a center for collecting recyclable substances with an objective to protect the environment as it also encourages the concept of volunteer work.

All profits made from the discarded items go to help low-income families, orphans, university students who can’t afford tuition payments, widows, and much more.

When you walk through the door of the store it feels like you are traveling through time. Spread across two floors, the shelves are filled with a treasure trove of items that filled Saudi homes through decades, including old television sets and radios. If you want to decorate your home with some incredible, and authentic, retro items this is the perfect place to shop.

This is a fun and interesting way to give something back to the community, as you get to discover a host of classic vintage items while doing a good deed.

RIYADH: Saudi Justice Minister Dr. Walid Al-Samaani has ordered the launching of a package of development services in the enforcement sector, aiming at facilitating the procedures for beneficiaries.

The ministry said the enforcement sector includes several services’ development programs that aim at finding innovative technical solutions and promoting the digital capacities of enforcement courts, to help beneficiaries and facilitate their procedures. These development programs are in line with the ministry’s systematic move toward digital transformation.
The ministry said the new services aim at expediting and automating the procedures and saving beneficiaries effort, time and money.
The package includes several services, such as informing the defendant of the enforcement order against them and the issuance of visit, custody and eviction orders.
