AN, RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) continued its relief efforts in Lebanon, Sudan, Bangladesh and Yemen this week.
KSRelief teams distributed 1,187 cartons of dates in the Beqaa Governorate in Lebanon to 6,000 Syrian and Palestinian refugees, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
The move comes within KSRelief’s project of ensuring food security for refugees and the host community in Lebanon, according to SPA.
In Sudan, the center distributed 8 tons of food baskets 1,052 people earlier this week who were affected by the most recent floods.
The efforts were part of the Saudi aid airlift, directed by King Salman.
About 2,625 food baskets were also distributed to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.
A total of 13,125 refugees benefitted from the donation in the Cox’s Bazar district.
The move comes as part of the Kingdom’s mission to distribute food baskets to displaced people from Myanmar and their host communities in Bangladesh throughout 2022, SPA said.
