ZARQA — The first shipment of aid from a Saudi-based initiative for solidarity with the Syrian people and to support the Jordanian host community arrived at the Ghabawi warehouses on Saturday.

Prince Turki Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz, the general supervisor of the “Nulabbi Al Nidaa” (we answer the call) initiative, said Jordan and Saudi Arabia work together to support Syrian refugees and underprivileged Jordanian families.

According to Bremeh Tueimi, the field coordinator of the initiative in Jordan, the 13-truck shipment contains dates, medical supplies, blankets and food.

Another 68 trucks will arrive within a week, and the aid will be delivered in cooperation with official Jordanian entities and charity associations.
