Today, the Big Heart Foundation, the global humanitarian organization dedicated to help refugees and needy people around the world, provided 1.15 million dirhams to support two projects in the health and education sectors in Egypt.

The support is pided between one million and 44 thousand dirhams for the development of medical care services provided by the People Charitable Hospital in Cairo.

Also, 114,699 dirhams to provide educational opportunities for dropout children in the basic education stage in Luxor Governorate in cooperation with the Misr El Kheir Foundation, according to the Emirates News Agency "WAM".

The launch of the "Big Heart" of these two projects comes in implementation of the directives of the wife of the Ruler of Sharjah, Sheikha Jawaher Bint Muhammad Al Qasimi, which aims to support the efforts of the communities and their endeavors towards improving health care and education systems and helping low-income families to improve their living conditions.

The Big Heart Foundation stated that the financial support allocated to Al-Nas Hospital includes an ambulance equipped with all medical supplies, based on its awareness of the importance of emergency services for the health care provider, which constitute an initial and immediate response to medical emergencies around the clock.

The foundation pointed out that the support also includes the purchase of a zero-emission electric transport cart that helps patients who are unable to walk 350 meters from the hospital gate to the outpatient center, in addition to the purchase of two additional buses to meet the transportation needs of all hospital employees.

Maryam Al Hammadi, Director of the Big Heart Foundation, said: "The Foundation's support for two projects in the health and education sectors in Egypt embodies its vision on the importance of the role of vital sectors in societies, foremost among which are medical care and education systems."

Al Hammadi explained that the foundation is continuing its strategy that focuses on sustainable projects because of their direct impact on societies and a major role in establishing a stable and prosperous future.

She also indicated that the coming years will witness an evolution in this strategy, in a way that responds to all  the challenges and pushes towards achieving the third millennium development goals that the whole world is striving for.
