Saudi Arabia’s Ehsan charity platform records over $1bn in donations

Saudi Arabia’s Ehsan charity platform records over $1bn in donations

More than SR4 billion ($1 billion) has been donated to the National Platform for Charitable Work, known as Ehsan, in the two years since its establishment.
Almost 5 million people have so far benefited from the platform, which was launched by the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority.

The campaign is an extension of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s interest in supporting and developing the charity sector by making every effort to organize it, enable its activities, and sponsor it to raise its contribution to the development of society.

This focus and support has had a significant impact on Ehsan in its efficiency and credibility in delivering donations to those most deserving of them.

The authority’s president, Abdullah Al-Ghamdi, extended thanks and gratitude to King Salman and the crown prince for their generous donation during Ramadan, which amounted to SR70 million.

Al-Ghamdi expressed sincere thanks to those who got involved in charitable work and donated money to extend a helping hand to the needy through Ehsan.

The platform is supervised by 12 government agencies that form a supervisory committee. It also has a Shariah committee that ensures that the platform’s activities comply with the provisions of Islamic Shariah.

Through its charitable and awareness campaigns, the platform aims to promote the culture of charitable work and community solidarity, in line with the goals of Saudi Vision 2030, support community projects and humanitarian cases, and enable the community to donate through reliable official channels.

Ehsan is the first destination for reliable donations as a national platform that guarantees transparency to donors. It is always ready to work with benefactors and motivate them to donate to the needy.

The platform carries out its charity work through donations from individuals, companies, banks and affluent people through the platform’s application and website (, the call center via the number 8001247000, and through designated bank accounts.
