At Royal Group Charity Foundation, we believe that education is a key driver to individual development, social, political and economical progress.

We believe that a universal primary education is a key to the future stability of every country.

Education is a fundamental human right and essential for the exercise of all other human rights. It promotes individual freedom and empowerment and yields important development benefits.

Today, millions of children and adults remain deprived of educational opportunities, many as a result of poverty.

The United Nations Convention on the rights of children is a priority for Royal Group Charity Foundation as we continue on working for education for all in the face of conflict and poverty. Education is a right and a must. It is also the most requested service, and the key to helping communities move towards peace and prosperity.

Education is a powerful tool by which economically and socially marginalized adults and children can lift themselves out of poverty and participate fully as citizens.

With the continuous support of the founder and trustee of Royal Group Charity Foundation, His Highness Prince Khalid Al-Sabah is committed to bringing the poor children into education and provide all necessary materials to allow them to complete a good schooling.

The solution for children is education. We demand for developing countries to focus on prioritising a good educational systems that will provide the children with learning opportunities that will change their lives, and the lives of their children to follow.

Universal primary education is a major issue and a sizeable problem for many countries today.

Many emerging countries do not appropriate the financial resources necessary to create schools, provide schooling materials, nor recruit and train teachers. Funds pledged by the international community are generally not sufficient to allow countries to establish an education system for all children.

As a result of poverty and marginalization, more than 70 million children around the world remain unschooled.

Marginalization can have a negative impact on students psychological, emotional and physical health. Some possible psychological and emotional responses to marginalization include anger, anxiety, paranoia, fear, depression, sadness, frustration, hopelessness, resentment, powerlessness, isolation, stress, confusion, and many more.

These are all major problems which Royal Group Charity is addressing to demand the enforcement of the UN rights for children.

The lack of schooling and poor education have also negative effects on the population and country.  The children leave school without having acquired the basics, which greatly impedes the social and economic development of those countries.

Multiple effort’s is needed in order to achieve a universal primary education.

Prince Khalid Al-Sabah donates all fortune to charity

 

The young Prince is one of the world’s undisclosed rich Royals.

Prince Khalid Al-Sabah, the founder of Royal Group Charity had been inspired by the GCC development, founded on 25 May 1981 by the United Arab Emirates. The founders include Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain.

The funds would be used to bring awareness and to help eradicate poverty worldwide.

Many Royals praised the decision, calling it an inspiration to all of us working to fight poverty around the world.

The money will go to the prince’s charitable organisation, Royal Group Charity Foundation, which has been fighting world poverty on a global scale.

The prince, who does not hold an official government position, is also Chairman of Royal Group Holdings which consists of the Petroleum Industry, Construction, Financial and Entertainment platforms.

Kuwait Contributions to World Food Program

The United Nations World Food Program welcomes a new donation of US$50 million from the State of Kuwait for emergency food assistance in Yemen. The funds will be used to reach more than 2.5 million people over two months with wheat flour and oil through both direct distributions and WFP food assistance cards at retail outlets.

“This contribution reflects the generosity of the people and the Government of Kuwait. Under the leadership of His Highness the Emir of the State of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Kuwait has again stepped up its support to WFP to help us reach vulnerable families in Yemen.  

More than three years of conflict have pushed Yemen to the brink of famine; nearly 18 million people do not know where their next meal is coming from and more than eight million of them live in extreme hunger and depend entirely on external food assistance. 

This generous support from Kuwait will enable WFP to continue delivering food assistance to Yemeni people who need it most.

When one child dies every ten minutes in Yemen from preventable diseases, the key to saving lives is ending the fighting and ending hunger. As conflict continues in Yemen, more people are in danger of falling victim to hunger and disease. Yemen is currently the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. 22 million people out of the country’s 29 million need some form of humanitarian assistance. 

Kuwait is a major supporter of humanitarian and development assistance worldwide. In the last decade, Kuwait contributed nearly US$190 million to WFP operations internationally, helping to make significant steps towards alleviating hunger for some of the world’s most vulnerable people. 

Royal Group Charity can confirm that the State of Kuwait has saved many lives in emergencies and changed lives for millions of children around the world. Royal Group Charity will continue to support the Kuwait cause and mission by continuing its work in more than 40 countries around the world by feeding people caught in conflict and disasters, and laying the foundations for a better future.

 

GCC to donate over $500 million Ramadan aid package for Yemen

Royal Group Charity would like to start by thanking the GCC for this year’s increased pledge of million of funding and it’s continued support to the humanitarian response in Yemen.

 

Charity in Ramadan: Giving 

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 worldwide and improve children’s access to quality primary education in developing countries.

Saudi Arabia, UAE and Kuwait pledge over $1bn to Yemen:

Saudi Arabia pledged $500 million in humanitarian assistance for Yemen this year during a UN money-raising conference in Geneva.

The UAE also pledged $500 million while Kuwait committed $250 million for Yemen.

The UN said 40 pledges totaling $2.6 billion were received during the day-long conference, a 30-percent increase from the amount drummed up at a similar conference a year ago.

The United Nations’ “Humanitarian Response Plan for Yemen” in 2019 seeks $4 billion to reach 15 million people across the country, after raising nearly $2.6 billion last year.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, opening the conference, lamented “an overwhelming humanitarian catastrophe” in Yemen, where some 24 million people, or four-fifths of Yemen’s total population, require aid and protection.

Britain promised $264 million, and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) $24 million. Malaysia was also pledging $100,000 during the conference.

 

Royal Group Charity Assignment:

Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the world and are the midst of the worst cholera outbreak in history.

Ramadan is a time that Muslims worldwide can look forward to and come together to help those in need.

Royal Group Charity would go as far as possible to aid the suffering people of Yemen.

Our goals:

  • Help the poor families by providing them with food, water and financial aid.
  • Provide Iftar (hot meal) for the fasting.
  • Giving Zakat and Zakat Ul-fitr to those in need.

Our Ramadan Appeal:

Millions of men, women and children are on the brink of famine in Yemen. The United Nations described it as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis and the International Development Secretary has warned it could go on to be the worst humanitarian crisis since the second world war.  The devastation of war, lack of resources and a weak health service have all combined to tear through Yemen’s infrastructure and leave millions of people without food or water.

With the hope of gaining your support so we can help as many needy people in Yemen as possible. As Ramadan is the most blessed months for us Muslims, it is a great chance for us to earn multiple rewards by giving to those who have less than us.

Fasting the month of Ramadan serves as a reminder of the hardships that millions of people living in poverty endure daily.

What we can do during Ramadan:

  • Provide food packs for poor families
  • Feed the fasting during the month of Ramadan
  • Sponsor orphans
  • Sponsor families during the month of Ramadan
  • Deliver Zakat to the poor and needy

Please help to provide food during the month of Ramadan in Yemen.

 

How you can help:

You can help by providing dates, rice, cooking oil, flour and sugar.

With this complete Ramadan package, this is a great opportunity to sponsor a family for Ramadan and make their Eid even more special by contributing new clothes, sweets or toys for children.

You can make a difference this holy month of Ramadan. Make a donation and become a part of this great cause.

 

Royal Group Charity Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that Yemen 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.

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.

TOGETHER WE CAN END POVERTY

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.

GCC Humanitarian Efforts to Rohingya

GCC Humanitarian Efforts to Rohingya

The Rohingya’s in Myanmar and Bangladesh have suffered much in the latest act of violence.

The humanitarian aid’s dedicated by the GCC to the Rohingya amount to more than 33 million USD covering health care, food, shelter, water and sanitation. They were offered to over 350,000 displaced persons in coordination with international organizations.

UAE

The recent humanitarian gesture of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to send urgent aid to Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar reflects this country’s commitment to giving.

The UAE always sends humanitarian aid and relief to various countries in dire need of help after natural disasters and destructive conflicts.

SAUDI ARABIA

Saudi Arabia has deployed a humanitarian relief team to Bangladesh to help Rohingya Muslim refugees there urgently in need of aid.

The King Salman has allocated US $15 million to ease the suffering of Rohingya fleeing Myanmar amid a military crackdown.

A specialized team from the centre have headed to Bangladesh to make an assessment of the condition of Rohingya refugees there and to find out what are the essential requirements that are to be made available to them urgently, as well as to extend assistance in terms of relief, humanitarian help and shelter.

QATAR

Qatar Charity and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) signed a cooperation agreement to set up emergency shelter for displaced Rohingya Refugees in Myanmar. The shelters are expected to accommodate 2,100 displaced people for six months.

This agreement was signed at Qatar Charity headquarters at the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)

Under the agreement, the UNHCR will set up 420 temporary shelters for the Rohingya refugees in three areas in the Rakhine and Kajine states, with funds up to half a million dollars from Qatar Charity. This agreement shows Qatar Charity’s prompt implementation of emergency relief projects and care to provide humanitarian assistance in cooperation with international organizations, especially in countries where these organizations can take action easily as in Myanmar. Furthermore, the agreement enhances Qatar Charity’s cooperation and partnership with United Nations organizations.

KUWAIT

Kuwait Red Crescent Society continues to distribute urgent supplies for Rohingya Muslim refugees in Coxs Bazar, Bangladesh.

Distributions include carpets, ponchos, food parcels, hygiene boxes and parcels of clothes.

The Kuwaiti society also distributed kitchen ware and meals.

There are about 13 camps in Coxs Bazar, a city located about 70 kms away from the Myanmar border, where Kuwait is carrying out an ongoing humanitarian aid campaign to assist the weary travelers.

According to UN estimates, around 5,000 Rohingya refugees escape across the border every day from Myanmar.

Conclusion 

Royal Group Charity would like to thank the GCC for its humanitarian efforts and to express our appreciation of the effective cooperation between the GCC and the United Nations. We hope to meet the humanitarian needs of displaced people and refugees around the world.
