Kingdom continues to assist Kosovars returning home

The Saudi Joint Committee for the Relief of Kosovo reports that as of mid-July it had

provided the Kosovar refugees with over 4,000 tons of relief materials valued at SR 184.16

million (U.S. $ 49.11 million). The Committee has arranged a total of 800 trips to

transport over 30,000 people back to their homes in Kosovo.  In order to more effectively

assist in the next phase of re-building, it has moved its headquarters from Tirana in

Albania to Kosovo's capital city of Pristina.
