In Ramadan, the Saudi national charity effort received $202 million


Riyadh – The third iteration of the National Campaign for Charitable Work, which is overseen by the Saudi Authority for Data and Artificial Intelligence, has received donations amounting to more than SR757 million ($202 million).

King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the SDAIA chairman, each gave two donations totaling SR70 million to the campaign.

More than 4.8 million people have benefited from more than 67 million gifts, which have been made in roughly 23 different charitable sectors, including the educational, social, housing, religious, health, and nutritional sectors.

In the last two days, more than 1.1 million Zakat Al-Fitr donations have been received, raising the total donations made through the Ehsan platform to more than SR3.9 billion.

The crown prince’s empowerment of Ehsan and dedication to the expansion of the nonprofit sector, which raised its efficiency and dependability standards under the protection of a strong digital structure that helps realise the Saudi Vision 2030, are both factors in the campaign’s success.

To enable it to carry out its duties in conformity with sound governance that is overseen by 12 government entities, Ehsan has received ongoing support from the leadership. It also has a Shariah committee that makes sure the platform’s operation complies with Islamic law’s rules.

Through the platform’s app and website,, as well as the benefactors’ call centre through the number 8001247000 and the authorised bank accounts, the platform continues to collect donations from individuals, businesses, banks, donors, and wealthy people.
