Saudi Aid: The World Food Program

This program is concerned with providing food to the needy all over the world, food being a vital element to human survival. Due to this program's importance, the Kingdom has recently extended to this program donations in money and in kind totaling more than 1,245 million Saudi Riyals up to 1988 (1408/09 AH), at a rate of more than 100 million Saudi Riyals per year.

Official statistics show that about 50% of this program's resources has been allocated in previous years to the African Continent because of the persistent drought in many of its countries.
