Saudi Gazette report

Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman has donated SR100 million from his personal expenses for charitable activities.

Out of the SR100 million, SR87 million is earmarked for 29 charitable societies across Saudi Arabia and the amount is to be spent within days, according to the Crown Prince’s instruction.

The remaining SR13 million is meant for the payment of debts of more than 150 prisoners who are insolvent in financial cases so that they are released and returned to their families today.

This support comes under the "SNAD Muhammad Bin Salman" program to enable charitable societies to provide services to 8 groups in the society.

The groups include women’s charitable societies, charities for people with disabilities, charities for cancer care, charities for the care of widows and divorced women, charities for the care of orphans, Down syndrome charities, charities for health services, and charities for the care of the elderly.

Each of them will receive financial support for their developmental programs that adopt training, rehabilitation, support and sustainability.

Meanwhile, the release of prisoners includes paying the debts of more than 150 insolvent prisoners who are unable to settle their debts, provided that the amount owed by prisoners had not been used in illegal matters and that they were never involved in any criminal act.

The Crown Prince's support for non-profit work in the Kingdom reflects his interest in humanitarian work and his support for all groups of the non-profit sector in accordance with mechanisms stipulated in the Muhammad Bin Salman Charitable Project, which is affiliated with the "SNAD Muhammad Bin Salman".
