Saudi Arabia participates in UN Rohingya donor meeting

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia participated in a UN conference for donors to the Rohingya refugee cause.

The Kingdom’s delegation to the meeting, held virtually in Geneva, was headed by the general supervisor of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief), Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah.

The main aims of the conference were to ensure the provision of aid and meet the urgent humanitarian needs of the Rohingya refugees, while also stepping up initiatives to deal with health education and economic requirements and help tackle the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

An estimated $15 billion in aid has been provided by the Kingdom to refugees around the world over the past two decades, including at least 60 years of support for the Rohingya minority group.

The Kingdom hosts around 270,000 Rohingya refugees, and provides them with free health and education services, and job opportunities.
