Alwaleed Philanthropies Lights Up Three Villages in Aseer region

<p>Alwaleed Philanthropies donated electric generators to three villages in Aseer region in Om Onayg, Altharwah and Asfal Aljafrah village.</p>

<p>The number of homes benefiting from Alwaleed Philanthropies’ donation as part of the “Lighting up Towns &amp; Villages” project are:</p>

<ul> <li>71 houses for the Om Onayg Village</li> <li>58 houses for the Altharwah Village</li> <li>55 houses for the Asfal Aljafrah&nbsp; Village</li> </ul>

<p>Lighting Up Towns &amp; Villages has resulted in bringing light into people’s lives in Saudi Arabia’s most remote locations – 500 villages, benefiting over 43,527 households and over 212,000 people.</p>

<p>The Foundation achieved this by installing electricity power generators that have a 10-year life span in thousands of villagers who benefited from the project.</p>

<p>The national power grid does not cover these villages. However, they are listed to be connected with the grid during the lifetime of the generators. Lighting Up Lives exemplifies one of the basic tenets of Alwaleed Philanthropies: We offer help where it is needed desperately.</p>
