Saudi Arabia through its humanitarian arm, financed at least 492 projects in 42 countries to the tune of billions of USD in the past three years.

The King Salman Relief and Humanitarian Aid Centre (K.S. relief) revealed in a statistical report carried by the local media this week.

The centre, which was established in May 2015, showed that it made the funding with the participation of 125 partners.

The centre statistics show it financed 301 projects in Yemen alone worth $1.67 billion USD with collaboration of 80 local corporate partners.

It reveals its projects in Yemen which covered a wide area including food, security, health, water, accommodation, environment, education, communications and a variety of other projects.

Sauid Arabi has come under international scrutiny for its heavy involvement in the Yemen civil war over recent years.

The statistics also reveal that with the contribution of five partners, it has financed 12 projects worth $16.8 million USD for the Rohinga Muslims in Myanmar and Bangladesh, where they took refuge.

It also showed it financed 49 humanitarian projects in Syria at a cost of $83 USD million in collaboration with 15 partners.

In Somalia, the K. S. relief centre financed nine projects at a cost of $21.9 million USD which consisted of food, water, environment and others.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
