Alwaleed Philanthropies first philanthropic organization to contribute to the UN Trust Fund for the Aral Region in Uzbekistan

The UN in Uzbekistan recognizes the trailblazing and benevolent initiative of Alwaleed Philanthropies, a philanthropic organization chaired by HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Al Saud and based in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, towards the sustainable development in the Aral Sea Region. The Alwaleed Philanthropies values the importance of addressing human development globally. In support of this value, the Alwaleed Philanthropies partners with the United Nations Multi-Partner Human Security Trust Fund for the Aral Sea Region in Uzbekistan (MPHSTF) and made a generous contribution of USD 200,000 to the Fund in May 2021. 

With Alwaleed Philanthropies’ partnership with the MPHSTF, the UN is confident that broader sets of solutions will reach the vulnerable groups in the Aral Sea Region including women, youth, children, and the elderly. The support from Alwaleed combined with contributions from the Governments of Uzbekistan, Norway, Finland, Republic of Korea, and the European Union will allow the MPHSTF to support more programmes that are also responsive to the needs of the people of the Aral Sea Region. It will also enable the MPHSTF to sharpen its focus on the impacts of and solutions to the triple planetary crisis ? climate, nature, pollution ? in the Aral Sea Region.
