1,000 families benefit from Alwaleed’s iftar project


RIYADH: The Alwaleed Bin Talal Foundation is supporting a Ramadan iftar project that will benefit at least 1,000 families in Saudi Arabia’s Alaridh region.

The total cost of the project is SR600,000 and will provide support to each family for 30 days. The food will be delivered to the beneficiaries’ homes in coordination with Albir Foundation in Alaridh.

The project’s goal is to help poor families in the month of Ramadan and help them cope with their circumstances. This was implemented through the provision and distribution of food packages of dates, flour, rice, oil, sauce, peas, milk, pasta and berry juice to families that live in remote mountain areas one week prior to the start of the holy month.

The foundation, chaired by Prince Alwaleed bin Talal and vice chaired by Princess Ameerah Al-Taweel, encourages and supports organizations and academic centers focusing on empowering Saudi women, alleviating poverty, upgrading services provided to the population, and other social infrastructure issues that face the country. The foundation is also directly involved in major projects that provide direct aid to the citizens of Saudi Arabia ranging from medical aid to housing. Other projects the foundation is involved in include the distribution of electric generators to remote villages and the printing the translation of the Holy Qur’an in 13 languages. read more
