13 April, 2020 (Cairo, Egypt) – Yasseen Mansour, Chairman of Palm Hills Developments, has announced the real estate corporation’s donation of a 200-room touristic complex to the Ministry of Health. The accommodation expenses are to be fully-covered by Palm Hills Developments and the complex is to house those working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis including doctors and service staff in addition to inflicted patients and quarantined individuals, of which there have been 71 positive cases identified and safely placed within the complex to date. In addition, EGP 5 million in funds have also been donated by Mr. Mansour to aid the Ministry of Health’s laboratory facilities for research and operational expenses.
Commenting on the current situation, Yasseen Mansour stated, “Egypt, like all countries across the globe, is currently facing a crisis, one that requires everyone to unite in order to overcome. We must all do our part to help our country and countrymen through adhering to local regulations, compassion, and tolerance. As the health and safety of our fellow Egyptians are of the utmost priority during this time, we have contacted and coordinated with the Minister of Health, Dr. Hala Zayed to discuss all avenues in which Palm Hills Developments can aid in the fight against COVID-19.”
Yasseen Mansour went on to praise the Ministry of Health in the institution’s consolidated efforts in dealing with the COVID-19 crisis, stressing that, “our partnership with the Ministry of Health is essential in supporting the welfare of Egypt and in the leadership that has shown tremendous efforts in prioritizing the safety of the nation. This is not the time to think about personal gains, this is the time to think about how we can help our country.” He added, “Any support that we can provide is dwarfed by the countless benefits given to us by this country and we are dedicated and prepared to allocate any form of aid to the Ministry of Health to support the inspiring work carried out by Egypt’s outstanding doctors and nurses.”
Owned by Palm Hills Developments, Mansour Group, and the Mansour-Maghraby Investment and Development Company, the 200-room complex delegated to the Ministry of Health is located within Cairo and is ready for the immediate quarantining of suspected or confirmed cases.
To support the affected communities and families under the nation’s social protection plan, Palm Hills Developments, in partnership with the Orman Charity Association, has pioneered the relief efforts by assisting over 10,000 families across Egypt through 2.5 million EGP worth of aid in the first weeks of the crisis.
Through this difficult time, Yasseen Mansour wishes to extend his support and well wishes to the people of Egypt and the world as well as all those patients infected with COVID-19
