Nairobi — The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) is set to open a regional relief office in Kenya that will aid refugees in the Dadaab Refugee Camp.

According to the General Supervisor of the Center Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Rabiah, the organization will also provide urgent food and medical assistance to Kenyans facing starvation.

He stated that last year, it distributed over 1,200 tonnes of relief food aid to the Dadaab refugees after the UN cut funding and food aid ratio for the 3 refugee camps of Ifo, Hagadera and Dagahaley.

The Kenyan Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Peter Ogego said that the institute will continue to work with the Kenya Red Cross in efforts to alleviate the suffering of refugees as well as those effected by droughts in several parts of the country.
