The institute has about 230 beds, five operating rooms, and an intensive care unit, as well as a blood bank and a gastrointestinal endoscopy unit.

arrow_ttl.gifSocial Solidarity Sector

 

Orphans are considered among the neediest segments of society, requiring both educational, psychological, and social care to help them integrate into society and overcome the conditions of orphanhood and the loss of their families. We define orphans as children have lost one or both parents

 

The Child’s Law guarantees the principles and rights of childhood, among which are Article 4:

 

“The child’s right to life, survival, and growth under the protection of a cohesive and interdependent family, and to all protective measures, and protection from all types of violence or harm or physical, psychological, or sexual abuse or negligence, or any other form of maltreatment or exploitation.”

 

According to a UNICEF survey from 2006, the number of orphaned children in the world is more than 150 million. Orphan children constitute about 5% of the population, and as such constitute a significant number of the Egyptian population. Approximately 43,000 orphans are counted in Egypt annually. This is partially due to the increase in the number of breadwinning women, whereby a third of society is supported by women breadwinners. According to figures from the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS) the rate of women supporting their families ranges between 22% and 26%, and in Cairo alone, it is 19.2%.

Despite the role that society should play in supporting these children and their mothers, there is nonetheless a clear deficiency in providing care to this children amid the weakness of the role played by the state and institutions. While such institutions should be providing support in all its forms, more often than not, the support provided, if any, is limited to financial support.

 

The activities undertaken in the realm of social solidarity vary, including:

 

  1. TheAl-Manara Project in support of orphaned children and breadwinning women(Manarat Al-Basateen, Dar Al-Salam, Arab Maadi)
  2. Sponsorshipproject for 50 families in Dewei’a, in collaboration with Gannat ElKhuloodCharity Association
  3. Providingorphans’ requirements for holidays and the academic year
  4. Orphan’sDay celebrations
  5. Monthlysponsorship for orphans and breadwinning women
  6. Warmthin Winter Campaign
