Through the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSRelief), Saudi Arabia continues to help people in need by giving them food, medicine, and winter clothes.

In Somalia, KSRelief distributed 700 food baskets to 4,200 people displaced by drought in the state of Galmudug. The African country has been plagued by the worst drought in 40 years, resulting in famine and displacement among people forced to flee their homes in search of food.

In Khartoum, Sudan, the Saudi aid group gave 265 food baskets to the same number of families. This was part of their initiative to help needy families get enough food.

In the meantime, different medicines and medical devices were sent to the Diabetes Association in Karachi, Pakistan, to help improve the health of 4,160 people.

The latest KSRelief aid package has tools for testing blood samples, 7,890 different types of insulin pens for patients, and 1,620 units of different medicines for diabetics.

KSRelief also provided a diabetic foot examination clinic with two examination beds, a sterilisation device for surgical instruments, a doppler device for examining blood vessels, and another device for examining nerves, as well as 318 surgical instruments for the examination and treatment of the diabetic foot.

Another 1,319 Syrian and Palestinian refugees living in Jordan, as well as needy families from the host country, will have a warmer winter thanks to the distribution of 1,319 vouchers in Zarqa and Jerash. These vouchers will let them buy winter clothes from approved stores of their choice.

The project is part of the Kanaf in Jordan 2022 Project, which is being carried out by KSRelief in collaboration with the Jordanian Hashemite Charity Organisation.
