The song’s lyrics were carefully crafted to inspire acts of kindness, reminding people that the true essence of goodness lies within them.

Donations can be made using any bank card, helping in the recovery of patients and bringing joy and smiles to Egyptian families.

With their user-friendly solutions and services, Fawry made it possible for people to donate to over 250 charitable institutions and associations. Among these notable organizations were Hayah Kareema Foundation, Tahya Misr Fund, 57357 Children’s Cancer Hospital, the Misr El Kheir Foundation, Bahia Hospital, Dar Al Orman, Mersal, and Al-Nas Hospital.

Donations could be conveniently made through the myfawry application or via Fawry’s widespread network of Point of Sale (POS) machines throughout Egypt.

This heartwarming campaign served as a beacon of hope, reminding everyone of the power of small acts of kindness and the profound impact they can have on individuals and communities. It celebrated the rich tapestry of Egyptian culture and the unwavering generosity that flows within its people.

And so, the “Kheirak Wasel Fawry” campaign became a symbol of unity, compassion, and the collective effort to make the world a better place, not just during Ramadan, but every day of the year.
