Hello Everyone! Winter is here and it brings along with it cold weather and unbearable living conditions for many needy families especially in Upper Egypt. Too many families comprised of orphans, young children, widows, divorcees and elderly members are without the proper means to keep warm and dry this winter.
PHOTO: Many children in Upper Egypt are not sent to school because they parents cannot afford to buy food to prepare lunches for them.
Many of those families don't even have proper housing or roofs to keep the water and cold out.
The government has upscaled its effort to provide better healthcare, housing, education, and infrastructure for all of Egypt and especially the least developed cities and Governorates while also investing much of the nation's resources towards providing for a safe and secure Egypt. They have made great progress but the government cannot work alone to provide for the millions of people in need.
It is essential for civil society, individuals and the private sectors to partner with the public sector to ensure that no Egyptian is left behind in our nation's ambitious development strategy.
We are asking for your help to provide for some of the most basic needs for some of the neediest families in Upper Egypt. Let's work together towards the development of Upper Egypt. Here are the options:
