WE Telecom Egypt has been nominated by the World Communication Awards (WCA) for 2019's best corporate social responsibility initiative award for setting up an electronic communication system linking blood banks across Egypt.
Many of the world's telecommunications companies, including ZTE, Huawei, STC, AT&T, Viettel Peru and Orange France, have been nominated in this year's competition.
WE managed to reach the final list along with six other companies.
The WCA is considered the world’s largest and most powerful network of independent freight forwarders, with over 7,278 members around the world.
WE is being considered for the award for linking the Ministry of Health's different blood banks nationwide with a fiber optic network, allowing a larger amount of data to be transmitted more quickly.
The network facilitates the exchange of information between over 200 blood banks and reduces the possibility of error.
WE CEO and managing director Adel Hamed says that the company has launched a large number of initiatives and community events over the past years in various fields of development, especially health, education, the empowerment of women and young people and the integration of people with special needs.
