Global Humanitarian Overview


















Over the past year, Royal Group Charity Foundation has been to 14 countries where people are caught up in major conflicts and disasters. Royal Group Charity engaged with parents who did not know where their children’s next meal would come from. We experienced families forced to run away from their homes and walk for weeks to find safety from armed conflict or persecution based on their ethnicity and religious beliefs. We listened to survivors of natural disasters whose homes and livelihoods have been destroyed. And heard from people who have somehow managed to survive the most brutal horrors of war and who continue to hold out hope for peace and a better future. We are witnessing extremely high levels of humanitarian need even as global wealth is higher than ever before. The Global Humanitarian Overview provided, for the first time, an analysis not just of how many people need humanitarian assistance, but a clearer understanding of why. Despite global economic gains, 10 percent of the world’s people are still living in extreme poverty. At least 2 billion people worldwide live in areas affected by fragility, conflict and violence, where the intersection of poverty, high population growth, environmental degradation, natural hazards and protracted conflict leave them especially vulnerable. In 2019, nearly 132 million people will need humanitarian assistance and protection, the majority because of the impact of conflict. The United Nations and partner organizations aim to assist nearly 94 million of them. The humanitarian response plans outlined in this year’s Global Humanitarian Overview are the result of in-depth, country-by-country analysis of the most comprehensive data available. Funding requirements are projected to be comparable to last year. While some crises have escalated, this year we also have better prioritization of the most vulnerable and severely affected people, and a stronger coordination with development partners to ensure a focused humanitarian response. Despite the challenges, the humanitarian system is more effective and impactful than it has ever been. We are better at identifying different groups’ specific needs in crises and quicker to respond when disasters strike. Response plans are more inclusive, comprehensive, innovative and prioritized. We have a better picture of needs and vulnerabilities. And we have dedicated networks in more than 20 countries to protect people from sexual exploitation and abuse. All of these factors allow us to design effective responses that save lives and protect livelihoods. Humanitarian aid cannot replace long-term political and development solutions that people in crises so desperately hope for. That is why we are working to mobilize the will, skills and creativity of the global community to end crises and promote development to help people become more resilient to those that can’t be avoided. In 2019, multi-year humanitarian plans and strategies are in place in 12 countries, which allow for greater alignment of humanitarian and development interventions, a focus on building resilience while meeting essential needs, and working together towards common medium- and longer-term objectives. Improved coordination between humanitarian and development partners is delivering results. In September 2018, the World Bank, the United Nations and cutting-edge technology partners launched the Famine Action Mechanism. The aim is to predict crises before they happen, and to trigger earlier funding for actions that may prevent them altogether. None of this would be possible without the thousands of aid workers and volunteers around the world, and the humanitarian organizations, governments and donors who make this life saving work possible. Royal Group Charity remains dedication in doing it’s work around the world.

Kuwait international humanitarian efforts

Living up to its UN recognition as International Humanitarian Center, Kuwait continues to assist needy people in a number of countries around the world, distributing humanitarian aid to families and needy people.

Further aid comes after conducting a field survey in collaboration with local humanitarian organizations to specify those who deserve assistance in order to alleviate their suffering.

Kuwait has been working to assist the Yemeni people in all areas of education, health, shelter, food and water. 

Kuwait also donated million’s of dollars to finance water plant project as well as supporting health and education issues.

Kuwait’s support in charity and humanitarian work reaches the furthest places and supports and helps the poor and the needy and reaches to those who live in extreme poverty.

It’s a startling truth that can sometimes make us feel helpless.

Yet poverty can and must be fought.

Royal Group Charity Foundation is proud of the continuous love and support His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah carried out in 30 African Countries and all over the world.

We look forward to a brighter and more prosperous future for the world.

Please join us in the fight against poverty, together, we can make a huge difference for children and families living in poverty

(Please help us share and spread the love around the world)

Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud

Saudi Arabia had assisted and supported refugees with humanitarian relief and development assistance.


The Kingdom provided Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and Malaysia with assistance amounting to $18.1 million


The UN Financial Tracking Service (FTS) has revealed that Saudi Arabia is ranked fourth among major world donors of humanitarian aid.

 With all the false accusation placed on the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia still does not stop His Highness from showing his good will and support to the unfortunate families and cities.

In Sept 2018, Saudi Arabia had assisted and supported refugees with humanitarian relief and development assistance.

Dr. Aqeel Al-Ghamdi, assistant general supervisor for planning and development at the King Salman Center for Humanitarian Relief and Works (KSRelief), mentioned Saudi aid to countries during a speech at the UN. He said that the Kingdom provided Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and Malaysia with assistance amounting to $18.1 million.

Al-Ghamdi said that 13 projects were also implemented for internally displaced persons in Myanmar through the International Organization for Migration (IOM), adding that Saudi Arabia has provided Syrian refugees in Jordan with aid worth $178.3 million, in Turkey worth $88.7 million, in Lebanon worth $95.7 million, and to refugees in countries such as Iraq, Egypt and others, worth $219.6 million with 198 humanitarian projects.

Aid worth $203.3 million was given to Jordan as a host of refugees, he said. The Kingdom provided $500 million to support the UN Humanitarian Response Plan for Yemen in 2018; of this amount $31 million was allocated to the UNHCR and $23.3 million to the IOM to provide assistance to internally displaced refugees and internally displaced persons.

The contribution of Saudi Arabia to Yemen since the beginning of the crisis in 2015, in humanitarian assistance, development and relief for the Yemeni people, amounted to $11.18 billion.

For Palestine, the Kingdom has been one of the largest donors, since 2000 until 2018, providing development, humanitarian and charitable assistance amounting to $5.55 billion.

In Somalia, Al-Ghamdi said that the Kingdom provided $177.3 million in assistance, carrying out 29 projects and providing $10 million to the UNHCR and IOM to repatriate Somali refugees from Yemen, and helping them to resettle when they returned.

The Kingdom had also allocated $10 million for projects in Nigeria, where urgent humanitarian and relief projects were being implemented for displaced people, he said.

In Pakistan, the Kingdom provided assistance amounting to $107.3 million, implemented for 85 projects for displaced people affected by floods and earthquakes between 2005 and 2018.

In Afghanistan, the Kingdom provided assistance to 32 projects for displaced people worth $22.8 million.

Al-Ghamdi noted that the Kingdom has hosted 1.07 million refugees (563,911 of whom were Yemenis, 262,573 Syrians and 249,669 Burmese), representing 5.26 percent of the total number of Saudi residents.

In the Kingdom, these refugees exercised the right to residence, mobility and had access to education, health and work, on an equal footing with Saudi citizens.

The Kingdom is working on a comprehensive database using internationally recognized standards that will soon be launched to record and monitor refugee data within Saudi Arabia. The humanitarian and relief work of the Kingdom covered 40 countries.

Royal Group Charity Foundation will continue to work closely with the Kingdom and help promote the good will of Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman Al-Saud and the Kingdom.

Saudi Arabia stands ready and prepared to support people in need of humanitarian assistance on the basis of core humanitarian principles and regardless of nationality, race or religion.

End to Poverty awareness campaign

Humanity has taken tremendous steps toward improving life for the world’s poorest people. Millions of people have gained access to clean water and millions more children now have access to life saving vaccines. Together, we can continue to push humanity forward.

Royal Group Charity Foundation, chaired by H.H Prince Khalid Al-Sabah, launches an End to Poverty awareness campaign.

Although poverty is considered one of the most critical issues in today’s society, only 10% of the cases are reported while 90% remain ignored.

Poverty is a global problem that is deeply rooted in the world we live in today.

Poverty is the state for the majority of the world’s people and nations. Why is this? Is it enough to blame poor people for their own predicament and be solely responsible for their plight? What about their governments? Have they pursued policies that actually harm successful development? Such causes of poverty and inequality are no doubt real. But deeper and more global causes of poverty are often less addressed.

Behind the increasing interconnectedness promised by globalization are global decisions, policies, and practices. These are typically influenced, driven, or formulated by the rich and powerful. These can be leaders of rich countries or other global actors such as multinational corporations, institutions, and influential people.

In the face of such enormous external influence, the governments of poor nations and their people are often powerless. As a result, in the global context, a few get wealthy while the majority struggle.

The silent killers are poverty, easily preventable diseases and illnesses, and other related causes. Despite the scale of this daily ongoing catastrophe, it rarely manages to achieve, much less sustain, prime-time, headline coverage.

For over 20 years, Royal Group Charity Foundation has supported and initiated projects in over 64 countries regardless of gender, race, or religion. We collaborate with a range of charities, government, and educational organizations to combat poverty, empower women and youth, develop communities, provide disaster relief and create cultural understanding through education. Together, we can build bridges for a more compassionate, tolerant, and accepting world.

Help and Support Royal Group Charity spread the WORD and join us to fight poverty worldwide.


Bringing Hope To Children



Meeting the needs for education.

Royal Group Charity provides Housing, Opportunity, Protection and Education, to disadvantaged children in developing nations, by providing family housing, supporting local communities and facilitating access to quality education and learning materials.

In the developing world, there are several factors that create roadblocks to a child’s education. The countries that have the lowest enrollment rates are generally those that do not have free, universal primary and secondary education. Where primary education is free, enrollment rates are high but many children do not continue on to secondary school due to high school fees, or because they are forced to work or stay home to take care of siblings.

Lack of proper school facilities and transportation in rural areas often makes it difficult for children to attend school regularly. In addition, there is generally a shortage of qualified teachers. Diseases such as HIV and Malaria have a significant impact on home life, as does hunger, posing further challenges to a child’s education.

Royal Group Charity Foundation’s primary goal is to help children in developing countries gain the benefit of a complete education. We believe education creates change, not only improving the life of an individual child but also contributing to the development of the child’s community and their country.
(Message from our founder His Highness Prince Khalid Al-Sabah)

Education is a right. It is also the most requested service, and key, to helping communities move towards peace and prosperity. Supporting education is a recognition of people’s enormous potential and the right to a better future.

Everyone deserves an education regardless of age or gender, religion or physical capacity, ethnic group or displacement through conflict. Education is essential if people are to participate in the life of their own communities.

Ramadan (a month of Fasting, Prayer, and Charity)





Charity in Ramadan: Giving up food, giving back to society

Giving has always brought out the best in people. Throughout the decades, people have sought different opportunities to give back to human kind.

There is little doubt that the amount of charities have increased, placing a greater need for the generosity of the general public.

Charity work

The holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims worldwide fast during daylight hours and abstain from other pleasures, is also the month where Muslims contribute to charity work, and donations for the less fortunate.

There is a noticeable increase in charitable work during the holy month.

We wish the whole year was this way. That’s one of the main purposes of Ramadan, to entice people to do good and to continue throughout the year.

Charity is never obligatory it is always additional. There’s no twisting your arm to do good.

Number one is feeding people, secondly clothing people, and finally housing them – no one should be homeless.

Royal Group Charity is committed to working during the holy month of Ramadan, such as feeding those that are less fortunate. by offering meals that breaks their fast every day.

Many international and national charity organizations take advantage of this month to provide for their various causes.

In the GCC ( Gulf Cooperation Council ) there is a particular drive by the community to help those less well off, Each year hundreds donate food, bedding, toiletries and clothes which are then handed out to workers as care packages.

Everyone participates in Ramadan, every resident tries to give. This is the month of giving, nothing beats that.

Royal Group Charity will continue to fight poverty, support ramadan and improve children’s access to quality primary education in developing countries.

Royal Group Charity Assignment

Since last year, more than 650,000 Rohingya muslim children and families fled to Bangladesh following a rapid and alarming escalation of violence in northern Rakhine State in Myanmar.

With the monsoon season approaching, the risk of outbreak of life threatening water borne diseases is very serious, particularly because the Rohingya people are settled in an area that is at risk to cyclone and will be flooded as soon as the rains begin. In addition, the make-shift camps and open sewage systems around water sources brings its own challenges which will be worsened by the flooding.

Royal Group Charity Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that Rohingya children and their families are supported and receive assistance and solutions including their basic human right.

During this Holy month of Ramadan, Royal Group Charity will be distributing food, shelter items, hygiene and household kits and handing out clothes and other basic requirements.

Royal Group Charity plans to reach more than 200,000 people including nearly 75,000 children.


Celebrate the spirit of giving during Ramadan by contributing to charities and not-for-profit organizations that work to help people around the world.
