Riyadh, King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) has pointed out that some bodies and charities are trying to collect donations for some countries, societies, institutions or associations, which is contrary to orders issued in this regard conforming that the Center should be the sole authority responsible of collecting relief, charitable or humanitarian donations, whether it was originated by government or public, to deliver it to those in need outside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, according to the regulations issued in this regard.
In a statement issued today, the Center called on everyone not to respond to what is circulated in posts or clips through some media outlets or social media, so that people don’t engage in suspicious operations that fall within money laundering or terrorism financing and others, and that donations must be through the official authorized body, which is King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center.
The statement added that the Center has prepared an electronic portal to receive donations at the following link: donate.ksrelief.org as well as through text messages to the number (5565).
