Wrapping Up 2019 With A Smile
School Supply Kits and Kindergarten Grants to Refugee Families
As the year is coming to an end, UNICEF has been distributing school supply kits to refugee students of all education stages, from kindergarten till secondary, as well as distributing kindergarten grants to refugee school children, aged from 3 to 6 years, in order to support their enrollment in education.
Thanks to the generous support of the Embassy of Netherlands in Egypt, USAID, the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration and the Kuwait Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the ongoing distribution began in December and will continue till the end of the month. A total of 62,000 children in Greater Cairo, Alexandria and Damietta will receive the school supply kits. In addition, approximately 9,000 kindergarten-aged children will receive education grants. The following photo gallery portrays a typical day of supplies and cash grant distribution to refugee children from Syria and sub-Saharan African countries, amongst others.
