On Sunday, the Chinese Embassy in Egypt, along with the Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, initiated a philanthropic enterprise aimed at provisioning less fortunate Egyptians with food during the holy month of Muslim of Ramadan.
According to the organizers, charitable organizations distributed a sum of 8,000 food baskets to recipients residing in eight governorates of Egypt.
At a gathering in Cairo that involved the distribution of food baskets, the Ambassador of China to Egypt, Liao Liqiang, articulated that the “Chinese-Egyptians Shoulder-to-Shoulder” charitable endeavor echoes the “Shoulder-to-Shoulder” initiative of the Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi.
This initiative seeks to alleviate the impact of inflation, in conjunction with increased energy and food costs, on the populace.
