Dear Friends of FECC,

On behalf of Friends of Egyptian Children with Cancer (FECC), I sincerely thank you for your generous support and commitment. This year, despite the Covid-19 epidemic and its economic impact on many. the vast majority of our donors did their best to help the poor and sick children in Egypt. We deeply appreciate your generosity to provide medications to those in desperate need. The cost of chemotherapy medications in Egypt is rising by the day.

This year. the FECC raised $140,000.00. Our overhead is minimal, thanks to the FECC all-volunteer Board members. Last month, $135,000.00 were wired to our sister organization’s bank account in Cairo. Seventy percent of the funds were earmarked for medications requested by Abou- El- Reach, El Zagazig, Ain Shams, Assiut Alexandria, and Mansoura University hospitals and the Nasser Institute. The amount of donation to each hospital is correlated with the number of children each hospital treated for – free that year. The remaining 30% of the funds transferred to Egypt were assigned to “the Oasis”. In addition, the FECC has reserved $25,000.00 for the nursing scholarships at Cairo University Nursing School.

Thank you in advance for your generous donations:

Would you be willing to make a tax deductible donation of $25, $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help us provide care for Egyptian children diagnosed with cancer in Egypt?

We simply can’t do it without you.  Your support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of those who are still in need.

Funds raised by our organization are spent on programs that benefit the children of Egypt. Moreover, our board includes four physicians from world-class institutions like the MD Anderson Cancer Center and Memorial Hermann Children’s Hospitals. These physicians’ knowledge of cancer treatments in Egypt and the US is critical in making informed decisions about the medication and education programs to fund. It is important to remember those who are less fortunate than us. Please consider donating to Friends of Egyptian Children with Cancer. Due to the current economic conditions in Egypt, your help is needed more than ever!
