Alwaleed Philanthropies (AP), chaired by HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Abdulaziz Al Saud, has announced the list of beneficiaries of the 13th installment of the "Housing and Car Grants" program. The program aims to provide 10,000 housing units and 10,000 cars to Saudi citizens throughout the Kingdom over 10 years.
