A 14-storey complex dubbed charity city was opened on Monday by Madinah Gov. Prince Faisal bin Salman which will house all the region’s charities.
The $13 million (SR52m) complex will have state-of-the art facilities that would streamline services to the needy.
Abdul Barie bin Awadh Al-Thibaiti, secretary general of the Charitable Society for Social Services, said the new building would generate much-needed funds for charitable activities, according to Arab News.
The 30-year-old organization helps more than 6,000 students a year on a five-year budget of $8.7m (SR33m).
The organisation also has four business incubators for women in various parts of the region and is keen to ensure greater financial strength to meet growing demands, which includes assisting needy families with cash for the education of their children.
