President Abdel Fattah El Sisi on Friday gave the go-ahead to volunteers of the "Shoulder-to-Shoulder" initiative in ten governorates.
This came during the launching ceremony of the initiative, which is conducted by the National Alliance for Civil Development Work (NACDW), with the aim of distributing six million cartons of food supplies across all of Egypt before the holy month of Ramadan.
The ceremony, hosted by Cairo International Stadium, featured a line-up of volunteers and representatives of the alliance members, along with the trucks that traveled from the stadium to deliver the food cartons to Egypt’s neediest families.
President Sisi thanked all volunteers of the initiative, saying" Thank you very much.. Through you we extend our thanking to all associations and participants in NACDW."
The president also thanked volunteers of North Sinai for participating in the launch of the initiative.
