In this context ,Mr. Hussein Mansi, Lafarge Egypt CEO revealed, “Through our presence, we seek to add value to the communities we operate in and most of our efforts are focus on helping people in need especially in the health sector where this comes among our top priorities.” “Sustainability is one of the main principles that we are keen to implement in all our activities, thus we are working on making these campaigns sustainable whether through their continuity or through their impact, as ECOPP offers professional training for young doctors in remote areas, in addition to General health awareness sessions in Giza, Suez, Delta, and South Sinai,” Mansi adds.
Lafarge medical campaigns are being executed in cooperation with ECOPP, a non-governmental organization that works on activating the humanitarian role in the medical field through community service. The campaigns include diverse specializations including, but not limited to, pediatrics, ophthalmology, heart, and chest surgery and gastroenterology. Additionally, they offer general check-ups and free medicine beside the transfer of critical cases, that need medical intervention, to the nearest public hospital with a referral letter to ensure free treatment.
The street children medical campaign took place this Ramadan in collaboration with Samusocial International Egypt, which is a French non-profit organization that raises the opportunities for having better life conditions for marginalized people and fighting the collective exclusion phenomenon especially for street children and youth since 2008.
