Muslim World League provides Egypt with one million Saudi riyals to help fight coronavirus

The Muslim World League (MWL) on Wednesday donated one million Saudi riyals (US$266,259) to Egypt, part of the Islamic NGO’s humanitarian mission to provide support for Muslim and non-Muslim societies in their fight against the coronavirus.

Mohamed Farghaly, director of the MWL Office in Cairo, said the funds would go for the Egyptian Ministry of Health and Population to help support efforts to combat coronavirus.

According to its website, the MWL is an Islamic NGO based in the Saudi city of Mecca.

It said it “aims to present the true Islam and its tolerant principles, provide humanitarian aid, extend bridges of dialogue and cooperation with all, engage in positive openness to all cultures and civilizations, follow the path of centrism and moderation to realize the message of Islam and ward off movements calling for extremism, violence and exclusion for a world full of peace, justice and coexistence.”
