Recent Saudi Aid efforts

In recent years, the Kingdom has continued to distinguish itself by its unstinting efforts to provide aid to regions stricken by ethnic conflicts, often far from the Arab heartlands.

First in Bosnia, then in Kosovo and Chechnya, Saudi Arabia has sustained an aid program, not for days or weeks (while the attention of the world's media were focused on the crises) but for months and years, for as long as the need exists. Plane after plane has taken off from the Kingdom with much needed supplies, while the Joint Saudi Committee for the Relief of Kosovo and Chechnya in Pristina has organized building programs and other assistance on the ground in the stricken regions.

The aid program for these regions has been organized by the Saudi Government but Saudi citizens have themselves made an outstanding contribution to help those driven from their homes by 'ethnic cleansing'.
