CAIRO – 9 January 2023: Egypt’s National Alliance for Civil Development Work (NACDW) has provided services to around 30 million people, including food, health, and social services, over the past year, an official at the alliance told President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi on Monday.

In a conference for the alliance attended by Sisi, Noha Talaat, Secretary of NACDW said the alliance reached around 30 million citizens at a cost of LE 12 billion.

She added that the alliance managed to provided services to the entitled citizens thanks to the unified database of vulnerable citizens, which shows services provided to them.


NACDW has provided food services to 25 million citizens, social assistance to 20 million, health services to 5 million, housing to 54,000, and job opportunities to 139,500 citizens, given that a citizen can obtain more than a service, Talaat explained.

NACDW's activities have been directly connected to the axes of the National Strategy for Human Rights launched by the end of 2021, including the right to food, health, clean water, and social protection, she affirmed.

Talaat said the president’s declaring of 2022 a year for civil society was a great chance to launch participatory work.


“You have given us a golden opportunity by declaring 2022 a year for civil society,” she stressed.

“I carry a message of gratitude from the tens of thousands belonging to the civil society sector in Egypt, hundreds of thousands of young volunteers, and millions of beneficiaries throughout the past year,” Talaat added.

Sisi has attended today the conference of NACDW, which was launched in March 2022 with 30 civil society and development groups working in various social development fields under its umbrella.


“NACDW is an important pillar in the development process in the state and is supportive of the system of social protection networks,” Presidency’s Spokesman Bassam Radi said in a Facebook post today.

He added that the alliance’s work is integrated with the efforts made by the government and the private sector as the three sectors work to achieve social development and provide service activities to citizens across the Egyptian governorates.
