WFP and MBC Hope improving child health and education in Upper Egypt

MBC Group supports WFP in enhancing poor families’ access to food and education in rural Egypt.

(mbc.net - Dubai) MBC Group supports WFP in enhancing poor families’ access to food and education in rural Egypt. The group has donated a symbolic amount of 100,000 US Dollars to WFP to mark the beginning of this new strategic partnership. This first contribution will help WFP provide daily school meals to 1,000 children for an entire school year in Fayoum Governorate in Upper Egypt, one of the country’s poorest and most food insecure areas. This donation comes as a result of “MBC Hope”, the group’s corporate social responsibility campaign launched in Ramadan 2013 on Twitter under the title “Tweet to Donate”.
