Supporting Families During the Crisis

Upper Egypt Village Cluster, Egypt


We are continuing to provide some grocery bags to those who have lost their jobs. Last week we learnt from the committee in Taha Village about a widow whose daughter is suffering from cancer, yet who did not visit the hospital due to the coronavirus.

It's a very bad and emotional time for the family. We visited the woman and provided food, and we coordinated with a doctor to provide necessary aid and medical assistance.


In Al Farafra Oasis in the western desert of Egypt, the majority of the population in this area is working on land reclamation and agriculture. One of our team members met with key villagers who want to develop their society. There are many natural resources in this area, but they are not yet utilised.


We are continuing to provide awareness sessions about the coronavirus as needed in the different villages of Upper Egypt.


Thank you,
