The Arab Council for Social Responsibility organized an online seminar to celebrate the International Day of Charitable Work, which was adopted by the United Nations in its agenda and also adopted by Egypt, for the first time in the Arab world.
The discussion, moderated by Dr. Nizar Sami, Deputy Secretary General of the Arab Council, began with Dr. Randa Rizk's emphasis on the importance of the International Day of Charitable Work, referring to her previous contribution in adding the International Youth Day to the Egyptian agenda.
Dr. Enas Hamad, Director of the United Nations Volunteer Program in Egypt and the Arab World, stressed the sacrifices that aid workers make, especially since their work conditions are in dangerous and difficult places, which was the focus of the UN speech this year.
While Hisham Suleiman said in his speech that the media were failing to explain the dangers of the Corona, because most of the world was not aware of its dangers, but the matter was corrected after that and the seriousness of the issue was explained in direct and indirect ways.
Dr. Mohamed Azzam spoke in his speech about the role of technology in supporting charitable work, citing an example of what happened in the "Corona" pandemic in terms of communication via the Internet as well as distance education, stressing that we need to unite efforts in charitable work and abandon the theory of fish and hooks.
The media, Tariq Allam, indicated in his speech that charitable work represents the world and the hereafter, adding that there is a state of boredom among the public from adhering to precautions to confront the Corona virus, and from here he warns of the importance of continuing with volunteer work to raise awareness.
Suhair Al-Awadi, director of the debtors' projects at the Misr El-Kheir Foundation, added that the Foundation was interested in the project of the debtors, especially during the Corona pandemic, while Salah al-Jaafrawi, the advisor to the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation, indicated in his speech that charitable work needs very many things, the most important of which is to have sincerity in Work and that the person believes in his work, in addition to great coordination between the bodies.
The students of the Faculty of Economics and Political Science at the Future University in Egypt also participated in the conference, where the student Youssef Ibrahim at the Faculty of Economics at the University of the Future spoke on their behalf, who recounted their role in charitable work in the Egyptian society over the past 6 years, in addition to student Alya Al-Abseiri, a student of the American University, about her role and participation in the work.
