Clinic Princess Grace - Mokattam

In 1997, MAP directors made the acquaintance of Sister Emmanuelle and Sister Sara in the slum of Mokattam, where 70,000 people, rag pickers, live from recycling garbage. Diseases of eyes and skin, tuberculosis, hepatitis and severe respiratory problems are the most common illnesses.
In 2002, thanks to the financial assistance of the World Music Awards, MAP built the Princess Grace Clinic. Since then MAP continues to fund yearly ordinary and extraordinary expenses as an operating table and dental seat in 2013, or an echographer in 2015.

Scholarships - Mokattam

In 2012, for the first time, girls from families of rag pickers from Mokattam followed university studies: four of them in pharmacy (for 5 years) and one in medicine (for 7 years). They all passed their high school diploma with excellent grades and deserved the opportunity to continue their studies. MAP finances their degrees.

In 2007, in collaboration with ASMAE, MAP created the professional crafts training project for girls and boys in the villages of the El Marg community.

University Children Hospital - Cairo

Since 2008, MAP has funded surgery interventions carried out by Dr. Sonia El Saeidi at the Cairo Children's Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in the world. The demand for care is increasing, between 60.000 and 70.000 patients. Despite the efforts of the hospital, the economic situation is such that it cannot meet the demands of all patients who depend on it.

In the period 2012-2014, MAP contributed to the Children’s Hospital with the purchase of surgical equipment necessary for cardiac surgery procedures. This has saved, to date, some 60 children.
