The below statistics are only to the entries which we have identified and reviewed and admitted into our database, which is a perpetual task (keeping them up-to-date and re-verified).
It must be further noted that there exists tens of thousands of CSO’s serving the Arab states for which we will continue our journey to sort and filter most, if not all of them in due course.
