Boeing held its annual Ramadan volunteer activity in Egypt for the second consecutive year at the Al-Kasr Al-Ainy Hospital in Cairo.

This year, Boeing and EgyptAir joined hands to double the number of volunteers to provide care packages for children and their families at the hospital.

“Our relationship with Boeing goes back many decades and we are delighted to partner with them in this volunteer activity which will bring smiles and happiness to many patients and their families during this Holy Month,” said Safwat Musallam, Chairman, and CEO, EgyptAir Holding.

“We are pleased to share the same values as Boeing and prioritise the wellbeing of our community through Ramadan which gives us an excellent opportunity to fulfill our obligations at multiple levels to reach out and serve.”

“It is our responsibility to give back as much as we can to the community and our employees jump at every opportunity to volunteer,” said Bernard Dunn, president of Boeing Middle East, North Africa, and Turkey. “This year is special as EgyptAir is also participating, sharing the same spirit of giving. We have been able to distribute food boxes more efficiently to patients and families at Kasr Al-Ainy Hospital thanks to the increased number of volunteers. We hope that this small gesture will give them some comfort during the holy month of Ramadan.”
