Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre has donated 50 tons of date palm fruits to Ghana (in the form of 2,500 cartons). The dates are to be distributed to Muslims undertaking fasting during the month of Ramadan.
For the past nine years, King Salman Bin-Abdul-Aziz Al Saud, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has annually donated 50 tons of dates fruits to the government of Ghana during the month of Ramadan.
Ayorkor Botchwey, in a speech read on her behalf, said it was her firm belief that the donation of dates by Saudi Arabia - and similar gestures - would continue to serve as an expression of the bonds of friendship, as the two countries worked towards enhancing their bilateral relations. The Minister recalled that the Ghana-Saudi bilateral relations dated back to 1960, when Ghana established a diplomatic presence in the kingdom.
