RIYADH — Saudi Arabia ranks third globally and first in the Arab world in terms of proving humanitarian aid to poor countries of the world, with grants amounting to more than $841 million and the Kingdom is the biggest donor for Yemen with contributions worth nearly 800 million until the end of July 2021, according to the United Nations Financial Tracking Service (FTS).

Speaking on the occasion, Supervisor-General of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief) Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, who is also an adviser at the Royal Court, said in a statement that the global achievement is a result of the unlimited support that humanitarian and relief efforts receive from Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammed Bin Salman.
