Alwaleed Bin Talal Foundation donated electric generators to three villages in Aseer region in, Al-Muroui, Al-Samrah and Al-Khotwah villages.
The number of homes benefiting from Alwaleed Foundation’s donation as part of the ‘Lighting Up Towns and Villages’ project are:
•50 houses for Al-Muroui
•50 houses for Al-Samrah
•50 houses for Al-Khotwah
Lighting Up towns and villages has resulted in bringing light into people’s lives in Saudi Arabia’s most remote locations – 500 villages, benefiting over 43,343 households and over 212,000 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.
The power grid does not cover these villages. However, the program is listed to be connected with the grid during the lifetime of the generators. Lighting Up Lives exemplifies one of the basic tenets of Alwaleed Bin Talal Foundation.
The Foundation offers 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.
