Saudi Ambassador to Jakarta Osama Al-Shoaibi pledged to follow-up the case of a girl whose Saudi father died a few years ago.
Ten-year-old Haifa Sultan Al-Harbi, who lives in Indonesia, appeared in a video recording on social media in recent days appealing for help to reach out to her late father’s family and relatives in Saudi Arabia.
The ambassador received her along with her mother and pledged to follow-up on their case.
The Saudi Embassy announced that it had given them a sum of money to meet their needs pending results of the inquiry.
A Saudi national on a visit to Indonesia found the orphan child in the province of Puncak Jaya in West Java and decided to help her.
The widowed Indonesian mother said that her late Saudi husband had married her eleven years ago when she was 18-years-old before he was killed in a traffic accident four years later.
