The convoys are part of a national plan that aims to provide health services to the country's border regions

Egyptian border region Initiative Hemaya (Protection) has continued to deliver medical and humanitarian convoys to Nubian villages in Upper Egypt's Aswan governorate.

The initiative, organised by the Good Makers Foundation for Development, Decent Life Foundation, Banque du Caire, and CSR Egypt, was launched under the patronage of Egypt's Minister of Social Solidarity Nevine El-Qabbaj and Aswan Governor Ashraf Attiya.

An expanded humanitarian convoy was dispatched to other centres in Aswan, days after a host of medical convoys was dispatched on Friday to support the citizens of the Nubian village of El-Mansourieh in Aswan, a statement by the Decent Life Foundation said on Monday.

The initiative offered services to dozens of Aswan's villages, said Aya Omar, the chairperson of the Board of Trustees of the Decent Life Foundation, adding that the foundation will continue its endeavours in the humanitarian front.

Omar noted that the initiative targets supporting citizens in western Egypt, including the Siwa Oasis in Matrouh Governorate, as well as other oases in the New Valley governorate.
