Jakarta (Indonesia Window) – Saudi Arabia through the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) delivered 100 tons of dates as a gift to Zambia, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported on Friday.
Saudi Ambassador to Zambia Osama Krenshi delivered the aid to Zambia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Joseph Malanji at the ministry’s headquarters in the capital Lusaka.
The gift is within the kingdom’s programs to a number of brotherly countries, aimed at reaching some of the world’s neediest families.
Since its launch in 2015, the center has carried out 1,333 projects worth 4.5 billion U.S. dollars all over the world, in cooperation with 144 local, regional and international partners.
Recently, KSRelief urged Saudis to make charitable donations only through the authorized entity.
The center has created an online portal to receive donations, which can be sent through donate.ksrelief.org or by sending an SMS message to 5565.
Donors can also make bank transfers to Banque Saudi Fransi, Bank Albilad or Alinma Bank.
