Custodian of the Two Holy mosques made a generous donation of SR20 million for charitable and non-profit works through the “Ehsan” national platform which was recently launched by the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) as an integrated technology portal for managing donations.
Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, deputy premier and minister of defense, also made a donation of SR10 million to the national platform.
The generous donation from the King and Crown Prince is an extension of their unlimited support for the development of charitable works and the non-profit sector in the Kingdom.
The Crown Prince, who is also the chairman of the Board of Directors of the SDAIA, took a keen interest in the “Ehsan” platform throughout its developmental stage.
President of the SDAIA Abdullah Bin Sharaf Al-Ghamdi highly valued the generous donation made by the Crown Prince for the “Ehsan” national platform charitable work.
“The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and the Crown Prince with their donation today provided an example to be emulated in supporting charitable and non-profit goals through the “Ehsan” platform, which is the single window for all forms of donations,” Al-Ghamdi said.
Al-Ghamdi clarified that the “Ehsan” platform aims to enhance the values of humanitarian work among community members through integration with various government agencies and maximize their benefit, empower the non-profit sector and expand its impact, activate the role of social responsibility in the private sector and contribute to raising the level of reliability and transparency for charitable work and others.
He added that the platform is a digital, governed, secure, reliable, and transparent system in collecting and managing donations, and it invests data in identifying and assessing levels of need and directing donations to them. The platform helps various non-profit entities to develop their financial resources, as well as facilitate the donation process for researchers.
