Teaming up with the Voluntary Work Ambassadors Foundation for Sustainable Development, African Dream will focus on marginalised and poor African communities in Egypt


The African Dream Foundation 2063 and the Voluntary Work Ambassadors Foundation for Sustainable Development, signed a cooperation protocol Sunday to implement an initiative to support marginalised groups, temporary workers and underprivileged families, in addition to spreading the culture of volunteer work and raising awareness on personal hygiene and the necessary preventive measures to address the coronavirus pandemic, and any epidemics or infectious diseases, among African communities in Egypt.

President of the African Dream Foundation 2063 Sally Atef confirmed that the initiative aims to provide food for temporary workers, poor families and Africans residing in Egypt, in addition to cooperation in preparing medical convoys and providing volunteers, doctors and medicines necessary to support these convoys.

Hatem El-Rouby, head of the Voluntary Work Ambassadors Foundation for Sustainable Development, disclosed that through the foundation it was mandated to provide volunteers, identify the most needy villages, prepare lists that include the names of temporary workers and poor families, develop action plans for these villages, and coordinate with associations in those governorates, with the African Dream Foundation 2063.

During signing the protocol at the foundation’s headquarters, Atef added that coordination will take place to identify the most affected places that include large numbers of temporary workers and poor families, and to organise the delivery of food and preventive health supplies, in cooperation with the Voluntary Work Ambassadors Foundation, and also to participate in preparing and organising forums, conferences and workshops.
