I was so impressed when I saw all these crowds in Cairo Stadium while President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi is embracing all the Egyptians with the initiative of the National Alliance for Civil work and Development "Shoulder to Shoulder", Tlthe largest social protection initiative in the history of civil work in Egypt. 

This is a symbiotic scene of associations and thousands of volunteers in the stadium, as more than 60,000 volunteers is a promising thing that we have not seen anywhere in the world as Ramadan boxes reached 25 million citizens. 

The associations such as Abou El Enein Charitable Association, Hayah Karima, Orman, Sonaa El Khair, Resala, and about 34 charitable institutions and associations parcipated in this event as the volunteers rushed to provide Ramadan boxes to the needy citizens. 

What felt pride in what happened in Cairo Stadium especially after the convoys of "cover and wellness"  toured all the governorates of Egypt looking for every needy person to knock his door and offer him help, and after we saw the villages that were fully built, and the small projects and the children’s festivals that added joy to the hearts in an unprecedented event and unique integration. 

Every Ramadan, everyone seeks to help the needy people but this year, the Cairo stadium was filled with all this happiness and joy,  showing the generosity, solidarity and love that fills this country.

Patriotic leader president Abdel Fattah El-Sisi said that shoulder to shoulder” intiative is a new victory for humanity and community solidarity, and that what we saw in the Cairo stadium is evidence of the Egyptian people’s ability to turn adversity into a gift. 

We are all proud of you and support you, Mr. President. We are proud of Egypt and the generosity and solidarity of its people. 

And I say, as the president said, long live Egypt with its youth and men, and the solidarity of its people, and with mercy and love in the hearts.
