The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz contributed $104 million to the World Food Program (WFP) to help meet an urgent need for funding to continue food distribution to millions of refugees sheltering in countries neighboring Syria, in Ethiopia and in Kenya.

“The contribution to the World Food Program reflects King Abdullah’s desire to help those in need, regardless of religion, sect or ethnicity,” said Saudi Ambassador to the United States Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir.

The contribution includes $52 million to assist nearly 1.7 million Syrian refugees; $42 million for refugees in Ethiopia, many from South Sudan; and $10 million to refugees in Kenya.

“We are extremely grateful for this assistance, which comes at a crucial moment for these refugees – all of whom have fled protracted conflict,” said WFP’s Executive Director Ertharin Cousin. “The compassion and commitment shown by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud will help save the refugees, especially children, from the pain and debilitating effects of hunger.”
