To help people in need “not because they need us but because we need them to revive our humanitarian feelings”: this is the guiding principle of Resala, a tremendous charity organization with more than 60 branches across Egypt and over 200,000 volunteers.
Along with providing aid and training for the deaf, blind, impoverished and underprivileged, the group focuses on the welfare of children, whether on the streets, orphaned, or otherwise vulnerable. For Eid al-Adha, it distributes clothes and toys for poor children in Cairo and Alexandria, where it also runs regular blood drives to provide for children with anemia.
It also supports education through school-building campaigns. In September, the group mustered convoys of school supplies to Ayat Village, which succeeded in distributing 300 schools bags to as many students. A concert for children was held in conjunction with the convoys, to celebrate the start of the new school year.
