Collaborating with Misr Elkheir Foundation on a housing development initiative
By Aly Osama
In an effort to ensure the wellbeing of our society and enable our public-spirited team to do more good deeds - especially during the critical times we've been facing since the COVID-19 pandemic,CEQUENS recently collaborated with Misr Elkheir Foundation on a major developmental project, aiming to revitalize houses in Beni Suef, Egypt and be of service to its people. CEQUENS contributed EGP 250,000 to fund the roofing of several houses which provide tens of families with shelter.
On Monday, February 22, a group of the CEQUENS Community from our Egypt office made their way to the city of Beni Suef to assist with the project. The team supported the construction work and oversaw the distribution of food boxes and winter supplies to help locals combat the area’s climate. Residents were overwhelmed with joy, according to Alaa Tarek, Sr. Internal Communications Lead, who was one of our volunteers, as she said they had gotten in touch with Misr Elkheir earlier to ask for support. “We are all accountable to and responsible for building a better future for everybody and helping those we can,” she says. “Today’s urgent matters require massive efforts to empower the local community of tomorrow.”
The project is CEQUENS’s first of many on-ground corporate social responsibility events to come. Our commitment towards supporting and sustaining local communities is of extreme importance to structuring a fully operational CSR function in the near future. Making sure people’s voices are heard and acted upon is one of our core values and an integral part of our operations. “The feeling of giving makes you feel alive,” says Ashraf Badr, Quality and Process Improvement Manager, who was also one of our volunteers. “I believe all corporates and individuals should make this charitable activity a recurrent activity as a small token to the community that benefits us all when set right.”
