In a step to combat novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Saudi Arabia and the World Health Organization (WHO) are working together.

In support of this effort, Saudi Arabia has provided USD10,000,000 to the World Health Organization for the implementation of urgent measures to minimize the spread of the disease and to support countries with vulnerable health infrastructures.

“This royal directive embodies the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s noble humanitarian role and reflects its keenness to harness its potential and resources in serving the humanitarian issues in collaboration with the United Nations, its agencies and organizations as well as the international community.” Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Rabeeah, Advisor at the Royal Court and Supervisor General of King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief), said in a statement to Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

Dr. Al Rabeeah appreciated this generous gesture from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and HRH the Crown Prince which comes as an extension of the Kingdom’s human stances during the crises faced by many people around the world.
