ZARQA, Jordan: Saudi Arabia has opened a health center to serve 300,000 Palestinians at Zarqa refugee camp in Jordan.
The center, operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), was financed by the Saudi Development Fund, according to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).
Saudi Ambassador in Jordan Naif Al-Sudairy and the Commissioner-General of UNRWA Philippe Lazzarini jointly opened the Saudi-funded center in an event on Monday.
Lazzirini thanked the Kingdom for its continuous support for Palestinian refugees, welcoming the $27 million donation Saudi Arabia made to UNRWA last month.
Al-Sudairy said the project was part of Saudi Arabia’s commitment to cooperating with the UN and international organizations towards helping people in need across the world.
