Egyptian Cure Bank

The Egyptian Cure Bank was created to increase access to healthcare and improve health outcomes among marginalised communities in Egypt. The Cairo-based nonprofit also provides funding to public and private medical centres to purchase new equipment and speciality units. Funded by both philanthropic and corporate donations, as well public fundraising, the organisation was established by Moez El Shohdi, co-founder of the Egyptian Food Bank.
