The award was received by the director of KSrelief's African branch, Yousef Al-Rahma.
K SRelief won the honour for its "distinguished efforts, rapid response, and interventions in providing urgent humanitarian and relief assistance to the displaced and those affected by drought in Somalia," Arab News quoted SPA.
Among the humanitarian aids by K SRelief, the latest was the distribution of 2,838 tons of food baskets to benefit 2,54,184 people.
