Transporting 20 containers carrying natural and canned food, shoes, electric tools and other supplies the convoy arrived in Gaza, destined to cooperate with the victims of the Israeli bombings departed the Rafah border crossing, as per an official statement.
The tonnage of the shipments, which began shortly after the ceasefire agreed between Israel and Hamas, is nearly four thousand overall.
Tahya Misr is organizing them based on monetary contributions and a sort of private enterprises, state and civil organizations.
The funds, in local currency or otherwise, are collected by means of a dedicated account created by Egyptian Banks and via a website of a charity organization.
This is the first time the entity is operating outside Egyptian borders, since it has been geared towards the contribution to the development of Egypt’s society since its founding.
The initiative responds to the directives of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi of supporting the ‘brotherly Palestinian people’.
