Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly on Saturday attended the launch of the “Tahya Misr” fund’s largest convoy of humanitarian aid yet, coming as part of the third phase for the “We Share … We will overcome the crisis” initiative to confront the coronavirus outbreak.
With his accompanying delegation in tow, Madbouly inspected tents containing components of the convoy and asked that the aid be distributed to 300 villages nationwide through cooperation with 20 institutional and non-governmental organizations.
Two types of aid compose the convoy, with the first consisting of 300,000 cartons weighing a total of 3,000 tons of food with 130 tons of poultry, 100 tons of vegetables and 300,000 candies alongside 100,000 pieces of clothing.
The second aid covers medical supplies for 26 fever hospitals in 23 governorates.
The Tahya Misr Fund’s Executive Director Tamer Abdel Fattah said that the “We Will overcome” initiative focuses on supporting the medical workers, first-care families and irregular workers impacted by the coronavirus.
