Nearly 300 children, including Egyptians, refugees, and migrants, participated in a special edutainment celebration of Children’s Day in Cairo. 

The event was held in partnership with the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood (NCCM), the Ministry of Social Solidarity (MoSS), UNICEF, and with the generous contribution from the United States’ Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration.

The celebration was attended by Actress and Singer Donia Samir Ghanem, UNICEF Egypt’s Goodwill Ambassador.
