"Christmas in a box" and cooperation with local school
“Christmas in a box”
Sharing the idea of Christmas with others and bringing them joy – that is the concept of “Christmas in a box”. The charity action of the DSH took place again this year under the leadership of Sahar Farouk, head of the Egyptian department of the DSH.
Parents and students of DSH prepared the Christmas boxes for children of the “Zainab Awad” school in Hurghada. They packed pencils and notebooks, but also sweets and small toys. The gift boxes were decorated by all DSH students with support of their class teachers.
On December 11, a delegation of the German School handed the Christmas boxes over at the local school. Representatives of the Egyptian Ministry of Education accompanied the action and thanked the DSH for its commitment.
Supporting a local School in Hurghada
In mid-December, a delegation from DSH and the Grand Charity Association visited the „El Fasl Elwahed” School in Hurghada.
The school took in 30 children who had no opportunity previously to attended a school. The children, aged between 12 and 13, now have the opportunity to learn to read and write in the school run by the Egyptian Ministry of Education. To support the teaching of the new students, the Grand Charity Association donated not only furniture for the classrooms and new windows but also technical equipment such as sewing machines and fabrics for handicraft classes.
Additionally, they donated footballs, basketballs and sports uniforms for the whole school, as the students had the big wish to form their own soccer team. The donation was delivered by Sahar Farouk, head of the Egyptian department of DSH, Hossam Abdallah, Egyptian manager of DSH and Maja-Jennifer Köhl as representative of the Grand Charity Association. Representatives of the Egyptian Ministry of Education accompanied the donation handover.
