25 Local cosmetics brands have teamed up for a good cause, committing 40% of their earnings to support a noble initiative. The raised funds will specifically assist students in Egypt who have lost touch with their families in Gaza due to recent events. These generous donations will be funneled through “The Charitable Association for Supporting Palestinian Families”.
The event also highlighted Dr. Hossam Takwan, a board member of the Palestinian Welfare Society, and his speech about the difficulties Palestinian students are facing in Egypt. Many of these students have tragically lost their families in Gaza. Dr. Takwan shared details about ongoing efforts to help and meet the needs of these students. This collaborative initiative involves partnering with the Egyptian Food Bank and the Egyptian Clothing Bank to ensure necessary assistance for these individuals.
