Humanitarian Relief


Srca-logoDuring 2015, in response to the ongoing conflict in Syria, the Saudi Red Crescent Authority, the country’s primary humanitarian arm, intensified its aid to Syrians in the neediest areas – both the hopeless displaced people who are stuck in their home towns or remote and border towns, and refugees in Syria’s neighbouring countries.

Successive relief truck convoys were dispatched regularly and distributed fairly according to international humanitarian standards through Turkey’s border crossings (Bab Al-Hawa, Bab Al-Salama, and others). This strategy is adopted by Saudi Arabian relief experts to ensure safer and easier flow of aid to as many beneficiaries as possible, in parallel with fellow local charities providing aid from neighbouring countries.

The total value of projects and activities conducted during 2015 amounted to SAR 200 million (€47.1 million) worth of diverse in-kind aid for 2,830,000 beneficiaries.
