Saudi Aid at the International Level

In addition to the Kingdom's intensive efforts to assist the victims of drought and other natural disasters and to support the means of sheltering refugees through bilateral channels, the Kingdom has not overlooked the support of international efforts in this area and has responded to the call addressed by the third and fourth Islamic Summits held respectively in Makkah and Casablanca under the auspices of the Organization of the Islamic Conference to provide assistance to the African countries of the Sahel afflicted by the drought. The Kingdom implemented the aforementioned special program for digging wells and rural development in African countries and contributed to several international programs in this field such as the World Food Program, the World Program for Combating River Blindness, the Arab Gulf Program for United Nations Development Organization, and the WB-IMF Programs for support of the structural adjustment of the African sub-Saharan countries as previously mentioned.
