Prince Alwaleed visits housing beneficiaries in Al-Hayir, distributes 200 cars

RIYADH — Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, chairman of the Board of Trustees of Alwaleed Philanthropies, visited the Housing Units Project during the last days of Ramadan and distributed 200 cars in celebration of the Eid Al-Fitr.

Prince Alwaleed celebrated Eid Al-Fitr with the residents of Al-Hayir Alwaleed Philanthropies’ Housing Project in Riyadh, as part of the Housing and Cars Initiative. Thousands of eligible Saudi citizens have received housing units in the Al-Hayir district. The latest act brought the number of beneficiaries of the Alwaleed Philanthropies’ Housing and Cars Initiative to 21,000 Saudi citizens.

Upon the prince’s arrival at the location, the people of Al-Hayir gathered around him to express their genuine delight with his visit to share the occasion.

Prince Alwaleed expressed his interest in identifying the living conditions of Al-Hayir residents and their needs that could be met by the Foundation. This was the reason he insister on handing over 200 cars to the beneficiaries in person.

The Foundation seeks to improve the living standards of Saudi citizens through various community development programs. The “Housing and Car Grants” program is one of the most important local programs, as it supports Saudi families with low incomes by helping them reduce their monthly expenses that go toward house rents and transportation.

During the trip, the prince was accompanied by Princess Lamia Bint Majid, member of the Board of Trustees and secretary-general of Alwaleed Philanthropies; Dr. Sheikh Ali Al-Nashwan, member of the Board of Trustees at Alwaleed Philanthropies and religious adviser to the prince; Manal Al-Shammary, senior executive manager at Alwaleed’s private office; Hassan Mukhtar, private affairs manager to the prince; Amal Alkathiri, executive manager for National Initiative, and Safia Alattas, project officer for National Initiative.

Alwaleed Philanthropies is one of the pioneers in housing initiatives where eligible citizens are granted housing assistance. The initiative is a long-term strategic project in partnership with a number of organizations that focus on housing. They ensure the services reach those who deserve them nationwide. The project is executed under the supervision of Princess Lamia and Amal Alkathiri.

For over 37 years, Alwaleed Philanthropies has supported and initiated charitable projects in over 124 countries. It collaborates with a range of philanthropic, governmental, non-governmental and educational organizations to combat poverty, empower women and youth, develop communities, provide disaster relief and create cultural understanding through education regardless of gender, race or religion.

Together with its partners, it helps build bridges for a more compassionate, tolerant and accepting world. — SG
