About Alwaleed Philanthropies
The Alwaleed Philanthropies have a long history of supporting refugees around the world in times of crisis. AP donated USD 400,000 for the relief of nearly 46,000 children and families both inside and outside of Syrian borders. This was done in cooperation with Nolabi Al-Nida Regional Food Bank and Save the Children. The initiative was launched in 2013 after severe winter conditions struck refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan. The initiative provided humanitarian assistance in the form of food, medicine and clothing for families residing in the camps. In addition, all the necessary medical services were provided in order to prevent the spread of disease and epidemics. Since the beginning of the Syrian refugee exodus, the Syrian Refugees’ Support Initiative at AP has donated over USD 1.5 million through strategic partnerships with some of the world’s most trusted global aid organizations.
The AP support and initiate projects in 104 countries, regardless of gender, race or religion. We collaborate with a range of philanthropic, government and educational organizations to combat poverty, empower women and youth, develop communities, provide disaster relief and create cultural understanding through education. Together, we can build bridges for a more compassionate, tolerant and accepting world.
