Riyadh, March 4, 2014
An 80-year-old Saudi woman has donated all her wealth estimated at over SR500 million to various charity associations, a report in Arab News said.
The donation was revealed by Badr bin Mohammed Al-Rajhi, a businessman, in a tweet on his Twitter account, said the report.
The octogenarian’s heart-warming gesture comes just on the heels of an 18-year-old girl donating SR50 million and another person parting with SR120 million for similar purposes, the report said.
Several people reacted by posting praise for the 80-year-old woman, whose identity or location has not been revealed.
