Advisor at the Saudi Royal Court and Supervisor General of the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Aid (KSrelief) Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Rabeeah launched on Thursday a series of humanitarian projects to support Syrian and Palestinian refugees and the host community in Jordan.  

During the inauguration ceremony at the Saudi embassy in Amman, Dr. Al Rabeeah expressed his gratitude for the collaboration with Jordan in shouldering the significant responsibility towards Palestinian and Syrian refugees.

He praised Jordan, its leadership, and its people for their exemplary reception and care of Palestinian and Syrian refugees, offering them comprehensive support and assistance. This compassionate stance reflects the principles of brotherhood and human solidarity, contributing to regional stability and peace.

Dr. Al Rabeeah emphasized that the projects represent more than just material aid; they are a message of solidarity and brotherhood to those in need. Saudi Arabia stands ready to support and empower refugees to rebuild their lives and secure a better future.

Among the projects announced, KSrelief and the UN World Food Program (WFP) signed a cooperation agreement to implement a $12,800,000 initiative supporting food security for Syrian refugees in Jordan. This phase is expected to benefit 50,000 individuals monthly, or 65% of the population of Al-Zaatari camp.

A project to treat cancer patients in the Gaza Strip, in partnership with the King Hussein Cancer Center (KHCC), was initiated at a cost of $3,615,800, benefiting 150 patients.  

Furthermore, a project to care for Syrian and Jordanian orphans in partnership with the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization (JHCO) was launched at a cost of $1,304,591, benefiting 1,000 orphans across Jordan.  

A framework agreement was also signed for voluntary medical projects providing cochlear implantation and hearing rehabilitation for Palestinian patients in partnership with Istiklal Hospital.

Dr. Al Rabeeah highlighted that Saudi Arabia has provided over $5.3 billion to Palestine and host countries for refugees in recent years, with KSrelief contributing nearly $480 million.  

He also noted the Kingdom's extensive relief efforts globally, providing $129.6 billion to 169 countries.  

KSrelief also contributed $6.8 billion to 100 countries in cooperation with 187 partners and implemented 2,973 relief projects.  

Dr. Al Rabeeah emphasized the Kingdom's unwavering commitment to delivering its humanitarian message to communities worldwide.

Various senior officials attended the inauguration ceremony, including the Saudi Ambassador to Jordan, the Non-resident Ambassador-designate to Palestine, Naif bin Bandar Al-Sudairi and Palestinian ministers and officials.

The Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Jasem Mohamed Albudaiwi, strongly condemned the Knesset's approval of a bill rejecting the establishment of a Palestinian state, the Saudi Press Agency said on Thursday.
"The decision of the Israeli occupation forces is a clear violation of international resolutions related to the Palestinian cause and confirms their desire and continued efforts to fuel tension and threaten security and stability in the region and the world”, said Albudaiwi in a statement.
He called on the international community to reject and condemn this unjust decision, which reflects the Israeli occupation forces' intentions to expand the conflict and their unwillingness to achieve stability and peace in the region.
Albudaiwi reiterated the GCC countries' positions on the Palestinian cause, supporting the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and supporting the Palestinian people in obtaining all their legitimate rights.
