King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) has signed an agreement with the King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF) to treat cancer patients of Syrian refugees in Jordan (second stage) with a total value of $1.33 million, the Saudi Press Agency reported Wednesday.


KSrelief Assistant Supervisor General for Operations and Programs Eng. Ahmed bin Ali Al-Beez and KHCF Director Nisreen Qatamesh signed the agreement at the Saudi Embassy in Amman in the presence of Saudi Ambassador Nayef Al-Sudairi, Director of the Branches Department at KSrelief Mubarak Al-Dossari, and KSrelief Director in Jordan Saud Al-Hazeem, SPA said.


The distinguished strategic partnership between KSrelief and KHCF started in 2018 and played a pivotal role in saving the lives of cancer patients, where the provided support contributed to treating Syrian and Yemeni refugees, the news agency said.


The agreement is part of KSrelief's efforts to treat the increasing number of Syrian refugees diagnosed with cancer, who cannot afford the costs of treatment, SPA added.
