The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) delivered 100 ton of dates as a gift to Zambia.

On behalf of the center, Saudi Ambassador to Zambia Osama Krenshi delivered the aid to Zambia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Joseph Malanji at the ministry’s headquarters in the capital Lusaka, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Friday.

The gift is within the Kingdom’s programs to a number of brotherly countries, aimed at reaching some of the world’s neediest families.

Malanji expressed his gratitude to the Kingdom, King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman for their support. He also thanked KSRelief for providing assistance.

Since its launch in 2015, the center has carried out 1,333 projects worth $4.5 billion all over the world; in cooperation with 144 local, regional and international partners.

Recently, KSRelief also urged Saudis to make charitable donations only through the authorized entity.

The center has created an online portal to receive donations, which can be sent through donate.ksrelief.org; or by sending an SMS message to 5565. Donors can also make bank transfers to Banque Saudi Fransi, Bank Albilad or Alinma Bank.
