RIYADH: The UN High Commissioner for Refugees has praised Saudi Arabia for being a significant contributor and partner in relief efforts across the world.
Roaa Fathi, director of Private Partnerships and Philanthropy at the UNHCR, made the remarks on Friday during her participation in the “Bisat Al-Reeh” exhibition, which is being held as part of the activities of Ramadan Season 2023 at the Jeddah Superdome.
Ramadan Season is a series of cultural experiences and events organized by Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Culture in Riyadh, Jeddah and Makkah throughout the holy month.
Fathi commended the humanitarian role of the Kingdom through its organizations including the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center, Saudi Fund for Development and the Saudi Red Crescent Authority.
She indicated that the UNHCR aims, through this community participation, to introduce visitors to the Saudi government’s humanitarian and relief efforts that assist refugees and those displaced as a result of wars and conflicts.
Fathi also pointed out that the UNHCR is keen, through its participation in the 22nd edition of the “Bisat Al-Reeh” exhibition, on expanding its partnerships with the private sector, charities and nonprofit organizations.
The 22nd edition of the “Bisat Al-Reeh” exhibition has been organized by the National Charity Foundation for Home Health Care.
