Egypt sends 500 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Gaza

Egypt has sent 500 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Gaza as the third shipment delivered by state-owned Tahya Misr (Long Live Egypt) Fund to the Palestinian city.

The third shipment comes 10 days after an Egypt-brokered ceasefire to put an end for Israeli aggression on the Strip brought into effect.

According to an Egyptian Cabinet statement, the shipment includes 20 containers of vegetables, fruits, canned food, electricity tools, and shoes.

The shipment was delivered to the Palestinian people under the slogan “We share for the sake of humanity.”

The motto was chosen to “encourage all social work parties around the world to compete and exert more effort to achieve record numbers in charity and solidarity,” the cabinets statement read.

The shipment was prepared through contributions and in-kind donations by Egyptian companies working in various commercial and industrial fields, the statement added.

The companies’ contributions are part of an Egyptian initiative supporting the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi launched an initiative for the reconstruction of Gaza on 18 May, announcing an allocation of $500 million.

Tahya Misr Fund dedicated the account 037037-Reconstruction of Gaza in all Egyptian banks to receive contributions and donations in local and foreign currencies.

The fund can also receive contributions through its website (

The Israeli aggression against Gaza lasted for 11 days, having destroyed hundreds of buildings and displaced tens of thousands of Palestinians in the strip.
