Alexandria City Centre supports Egyptian Food Bank’s ‘Odheya’ campaign for families in need
To spread the message of peace, unity and generosity of Eid Al Adha, Alexandria City Centre recently supported the Egyptian Food Bank’s ‘Odheya 2011’ charity campaign. Over the recent Eid Al Adha period, Alexandria City Centre and the Egyptian Food Bank raised funds towards purchasing food to support needy families across Egypt. The ‘Odheya 2011’ initiative is in appreciation of the traditional sacrifice of the sheep, which is then shared amongst families for Eid Al Adha.
The ‘Odheya 2011’ campaign is a program by the Egyptian Food Bank to support the hungry, needy or low income families across rural and local communities across the nation. Last year, they distributed meat and vegetables to over one million families.
“Alexandria City Centre is committed to meaningful, local charitable causes that directly support our communities,” Hisham Jaheen, Acting Country Manager for Majid Al Futtaim Properties Egypt. “With Eid Al Adha coming up, we are pleased to support the Egyptian Food Bank and the Odheya campaign, to raise funds to provide nourishing food for families. We hope that our support helps in reaching out to more people this year.”
