A donation of $104 million by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the World Food Programme (WFP) has been welcomed by the United Nations.
The money will assist refugees sheltering in countries neighbouring Syria, as well as in Ethiopia and in Kenya.
The contribution includes $52 million to assist about 1.7 million Syrian refugees, $42 million will help feed refugees sheltering in Ethiopia, many who are from South Sudan, and $10 million will provide food for refugees in Kenya.
The head of WFP, Ertharin Cousin said “these funds will go immediately to help people facing hunger and an uncertain future.”
The UN Secretary-General expressed profound gratitude to King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia for his personal compassion and commitment to help those in need irrespective of their faith, sect or ethnicity.
