UK Gives £1.8 Million to Protect Egypt's Most Vulnerable Families from COVID-19

In an effort to protect Egypt’s most vulnerable from the ongoing pandemic, the United Kingdom has allocated GBP1.8 million through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to Egypt.

In an effort to protect Egypt’s most vulnerable from the ongoing pandemic, the United Kingdom has allocated GBP1.8 million through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to Egypt. The sum will be used to back social protection efforts made by the Ministry of Social Solidarity to ensure that the most at-risk Egyptians and their families are not left behind.


But protection against the Coronavirus will not be the sole issue the partnership addresses. Issues such as positive practices in protection from COVID-19, the protection of girls from FGM, and good health practices for underprivileged groups were some of the main concerns highlighted by the British embassy.


“All over the world, international organisations, private companies, and NGOs are working together to reduce the economic impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable people, including through targeted support to protect low-income families," the British Ambassador to Egypt, Sir Geoffrey Adams, said.
