From Riyadh's King Khalid International Airport, the 14th Saudi relief flight, orchestrated by the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center, took off on Saturday.

It was loaded with 80 tons of relief materials destined for Zossof Airport in the Republic of Poland, near the Ukrainian border, as part of the Kingdom's assistance to the Ukrainian people.

According to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), the aircraft's cargo includes generators and electrical appliances, prepared for delivery across the Polish border into Ukraine.

This initiative underscores the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's longstanding commitment to supporting those in need and affected by various crises and hardships around the globe.

It is noteworthy that Saudi Arabia had previously announced a humanitarian aid package for Ukraine valued at $400 million.

This gesture of goodwill highlights the Kingdom's proactive role in extending support and solidarity to international communities during times of need.
