(MENAFN - Arab News) Alwaleed bin Talal Foundation donated electric generators for three villages in Asir region in Al-Harsha, Al-Badr and Al-Afjah Town.
The number of homes benefiting from Alwaleed Foundation's donation as part of the "Lighting up Lives" project are: 72 houses for the Al-Harsha Town; 71 houses for the Al-Badr Town and 53 houses for the Al-Afjah Town.
'Lighting Up Lives' has resulted in literally bringing light into people's lives in Saudi Arabia's most remote locations - 400 villages, benefiting more than 42,343 households and over 210,000 people.
The foundation achieved this by installing power generators that have a 10-year life span where thousands of villagers have benefited from the project, according to a press release.
These villages are not covered by the power grid, but the program is listed to be connected with the grid during the life time of the generators.
'Lighting Up Lives' exemplifies one of the basic tenets of Alwaleed bin Talal Foundation: We offer help where it is needed desperately.
Alwaleed bin Talal Foundation, registered in Saudi Arabia, is chaired by Prince Alwaleed bin Talal.
