WHO Director-General Hails Role of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques in Confronting Spread of COVID-19
Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus expressed his sincere thanks and appreciation to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud for his commitment to support the WHO in confronting the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), while he was chairing the G20 Extraordinary Virtual Leaders’ Summit held last week.
Via his Twitter account, Dr. Tedros said: "We value the continuous support of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud to fight the spread of the Coronavirus while chairing the G20 Extraordinary Virtual Leaders’ Summit. We are grateful for King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief) for providing USD10 million to boost global health systems in intensifying efforts to take preventive measures to stop the spread of the Coronavirus."
It is worth mentioning that the KSrelief signed here today an agreement with the WHO to support it with USD10 million upon the directives of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud to provide this support to the WHO to combat the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
This support reflects the noble humanitarian role of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in harnessing its capabilities and resources in serving the humanitarian issues, in full cooperation with the United Nations, its agencies, organizations and the international community to achieve everything that is good for humanity.
