Businessmen Build an Orphanage in Cairo
A Cairo-based Egyptian organization, the Society of Businessmen, has donated two million Egyptian pounds or $514,000 to the Dar-Al-Hanan Society for the construction of a center that will accommodate orphans and abandoned children, Panafrican News Agency (PANA) reported.
Dar-Al-Hanan Society, which was founded in 1956, is currently taking care of 238 orphans who live in an old building that was donated by a minister in 1956.
An official source from the organization was quoted by the PANA as saying that the donation was made to help tackle the problem of overcrowding at the orphanage.
Meanwhile, an Egyptian businessman has donated 3,000 square meters of land in the Nasr estate where the proposed new orphanage would be located -- Albawaba.com
