Alwaleed Foundation Lights Up Three Villages in Asir Region
March 4th 2014
Alwaleed Bin Talal Foundation* donated electric generators for three villages in Asir region in Al-Walema, Al-Masag and Rabwa Alwosheja Town.
The number of homes benefiting from Alwaleed Foundation’s donation as part of the “Lighting up Lives” project are:
• 50 houses for the Al-Walema Town
• 28 houses for the Al-Masag Town
• 30 houses for the Rabwa Alwosheja Town
Lighting Up Lives has resulted in literally bringing light into people’s lives in Saudi Arabia’s most remote locations – 400 villages, benefiting over 42,343 households and over 210,000 people. The Foundation achieved this by installing power generators that have a 10-year life span where thousands of villagers have benefited from the project. These villages are not covered by the power grid, but the program is listed to be connected with the grid during the life time of the generators. Lighting Up Lives exemplifies one of the basic tenets of Alwaleed Bin Talal Foundation: We offer help where it is needed desperately. *Alwaleed Bin Talal Foundation, registered in Saudi Arabia, is chaired by HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud.
