Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has provided Pakistan with 150 tons of high-quality dates for distribution among the needy as a tradition this year. The distribution was made mostly in the Holy month of Ramadan.
According to the media section of the Saudi embassy, the dates were made available on the instructions of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdul Aziz and Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman. The Saudi mission has reminded that everyone knows that Saudi Arabia is the pioneer in charity works viewing it as its religious and moral duty to support brotherly countries, especially Pakistan.
It said, “Saudi Arabia has never faltered to support to the economies of Muslim and friendly countries without any discrimination.” The release said that the Kingdom has long been a regional leader in humanitarian affairs and has demonstrated a profound commitment to supporting those most in need around the world which forms almost 1.9% of Saudi Arabia’s gross national income (GNI) and more than 80 countries have benefitted from development assistance provided by Saudi Arabia in the form of humanitarian, development and grant assistance based on the injunctions of Allah Almighty and sayings of the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessing of Allah be upon Him). The mission has prayed to Allah Almighty for progress and perpetuate blessing for security and safety of all Muslim countries.
