Giving to charity or supporting a nonprofit organization is a way to express your connection with your community and the world. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become even more crucial to be socially conscious and support your community as many business and families struggle to make ends meet.
Here are a few causes to think about getting behind and donating to this Ramadan.
1. Ramadan Food Box
Neya, a social platform that helps you donate and volunteer for various causes through their mobile application, is distributing Ramadan food boxes to families in Sohag, Minya, Fayoum, Alexandria and Greater Cairo.
With the click of a button, you are able to help a family through three easy steps: download and open the Neya application, press the ‘donate’ button and select Ramadan food box, and then complete the relevant information to begin the process.
2. Give 2000 Egyptian Families Affordable Health Care
Shamseya organization is dedicated to finding innovative community healthcare solutions that prioritize a patient-centered healthcare system. “In a country where up to 73% of total healthcare costs are paid for directly from people’s pockets; Shamseya recognizes that patients not only need to be supported with their recovery but also empowered to understand how to navigate and improve their healthcare system,” it states on its website.
You can now help over 2000 families (by clicking here) have to access vital healthcare services and get the most from the healthcare coverage they are entitled to, and allow Shamseya to help these families “navigate” through the complex and highly bureaucratic healthcare system.
3. Egyptian Food Bank
