Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) recently launched a project to provide food aid to the poor in Mali.
An event to mark the distribution was attended by Saudi ambassador to Mali Khalid Al-Khalid, a KSrelief team and a number of Malian officials.
The aid includes 15,038 bags of rice, weighing 752 tons. It will be delivered to a number of Malian regions, benefiting 120,304 individuals.
It comes within the framework of humanitarian and relief projects being implemented by the Kingdom, through KSrelief, for countries and peoples around the world.
Meanwhile, KSrelief delivered medical and preventive assistance to Uruguay in order to help the country combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
On behalf of KSrelief, Saudi Ambassador to Uruguay Eyad bin Ghazi Hakim officially handed over the support in the presence of Uruguayan Minister of Public Health Daniel Salinas.
Salinas said that Uruguay has “benefited greatly” from Saudi assistance in its fight against the pandemic.
