Egypt Relief And Aid
Founded in 2020, our team at ERA believes that we can end extreme poverty in Egypt within our lifetime.
Established in 2020, Egypt Relief & Aid (ERA) is focused on bringing attention to the development of Egypt through enhancing the socioeconomic, artistic, health, and educational landscapes in urban and rural communities across the country’s regions. We seek to support and strengthen existing initiatives and partner with trustworthy organizations on the ground to have the broadest impact in many issue areas. As an all women, volunteer run organization, we pass 100% of your donations on to our projects and programs, with no overhead costs. ERA is a 501(c)(3) registered organization with the IRS, and donations are fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
ERA’s mission is to protect the most vulnerable Egyptians, elevate their most pressing concerns, improve their well-being, and promote more cohesive and developed communities through our various initiatives and advocacy programs.
Our team is continuously researching partners and initiatives where ERA could have the most meaningful impact. If you are interested in hosting or developing a project, we encourage you to connect with us. Where possible, we work with organizations that have been approved through Charities Foundation of America, which researches and validates international charities for compliance with US regulations, risk mitigation, and reputational diligence.
We are currenrly working with Dar El-Sondos, an orphanage for 193 moderate to severe special needs children founded in 2003, with 4 homes throughout Cairo. Your donations go towards areas such as:
One-on-one care givers for each child
Food and specialized nutrition
Rehabilitation and speech therapy
Salaries for facility administrators and staff
Utility expenses for the homes
More than 1 in 3 Egyptians live below the poverty line and are experiencing food insecurity. ERA has committed to regular food distribution programs across the Republic. We have partnered with the Egyptian Food Bank to distribute general food vouchers and meat vouchers to needy families.
We are raising funds towards the cost of operating incubators in the neonatal intensive care unit at Cairo's Mersal Foundation Children's Hospital, in support of their efforts to minimize the shortage of critical care equipment.
Egypt Relief and Aid is also partnering with Mersal Foundation in support of their efforts to add 40 incubators and 6 beds in a new three floor neonatal critical care center. Founded in 2015, Mersal Foundation is a Cairo based NGO that offers quality health care to needy individuals and families, regardless of background, religion, or residency status.
