British Ambassador Gareth Bailey, the British Ambassador to Egypt, and his accompanying delegation visited the Social Solidarity Department in Al-Toud and the Social Affairs Unit in Al-Toud East, to learn about the Egyptian experience in implementing the activities of the Takaful and Karama cash support program, and the efforts of the Egyptian state in social protection and economic empowerment.

The British Ambassador and his accompanying delegation inspected the Toud Solidarity Department and the Toud East Affairs Unit, listened to an explanation about the program, met some of the people who benefited from the Solidarity and Dignity program, and some women who were trained from the Forsa program on economic empowerment, and presented some of the products they were trained on.

For his part, the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Social Solidarity in Luxor stated that the cash support program “Solidarity and Dignity” is for groups most in need of care, including people with disabilities, the elderly, female breadwinners, divorced women, widows, and those unable to work, in addition to the parallel programs that are being worked on alongside “Solidarity and Dignity,” which are Opportunity programme, No illiteracy with Takaful, 2 Enough, and the first thousand days in a child’s life. There is also integration of social protection services, and the beneficiaries of the Takaful and Dignity program have health insurance, exemption from education expenses, and integrated services cards for people with disabilities.
