A Saudi relief delegation led by Ambassador to Bangladesh Abdullah Al-Namlah toured the flood-stricken regions of the southeast Asian country today. The Kingdom has provided Bangladesh with urgent humanitarian assistance and a $50 million grant in order to help the flood victims.
Last week, a team from the Ministry of Finance also toured the area in order to better supervise the distribution of Saudi aid to Bangladesh.
