Saudi charity platform receives SR260 million in donations in 24 hours

Charity platform Ehsan has received SR260 million in donations in the first 24 hours of its launch. The donations will benefit hundreds of thousands of people.

Ehsan allows residents to donate to causes such as renovating and furnishing the homes of the needy, giving food baskets to families, providing care for the elderly, helping dialysis patients, and housing orphans.

Ehsan has also integrated other charities’ services into its systems: Furijat, to help prisoners convicted of financial crimes, and the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center.

It also allows users to pay Zakat, a form of almsgiving treated as a religious obligation or tax that covers immediate needs such as food, water, shelter and medicine for those in need.
