Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, general supervisor of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief), met the French ambassador to the Kingdom, Ludovic Pouille, in Riyadh on Sunday.




The pair discussed cooperation between KSrelief and France to provide humanitarian and relief aid to impoverished countries, especially in Africa, in addition to ways to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

They also discussed Saudi Arabia’s role in G20 meetings and its support for international organizations, countries with fragile health systems and French health humanitarian initiatives.

The ambassador praised KSrelief’s excellence and services to people around the world, adding that the center is a “milestone” in the field of humanitarian work.

Meanwhile, KSrelief has continued distributing winter clothes to refugees and needy families in Jordan.

It recently distributed 5,427 winter bags and 10,854 blankets, benefiting 27,135 people in a number of Jordan’s governorates.

The distribution comes within the framework of humanitarian efforts from Saudi Arabia, represented by KSrelief, to support Palestinian and Syrian refugees as well as needy families in Jordan.

In Sudan, KSrelief finished its medical campaign in Al-Kalakla to combat blindness and the diseases that cause it.

The volunteer medical team examined 836 cases, carried out 400 surgeries, provided 2,580 medicines and distributed 557 glasses.

The campaign is an extension of the humanitarian and relief efforts from the Kingdom, which seeks to treat people with eye diseases and provide them with the necessary medical care in a number of countries.
