Our Vision is to be an aspiring organisation and key institution in empowering refugees and their host-communities in MENA region by fostering ground for socio-economic stability and solidarity.
Our Mission is to provide refugees and their Egyptian host-community with needed services and projects, directly based on community research to identify urgent and long-term needs in vulnerable communities and areas.
By doing this, we follow our main goal to improve the living conditions and the well-being of the community in addition to providing an access to basic human rights e.g. education, employment and health care.
Who we are
We are a group of Syrian students who started to provide immediate assistance in response to the ongoing conflict in Syria with self-help efforts to support Syrian refugees, families, and children who arrived without their parents.
Our work started in 2012 on a voluntary basis to help Syrian refugees arriving and settling down in Egypt and evolved gradually into a professionally working foundation to support refugees. Our first cooperation to support the arriving Syrian refugees to Egypt was with the Egyptian Medical Syndicate to provide affordable housing and cash assistance.
In March 2013, the Foundation began its official work in the Arab Republic of Egypt (Licence Number:4846) as an emergence response to the extremely difficult conditions because of the Syrian conflict to support the hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees in Egypt in cooperation with regional and international NGOs in Egypt. With a great ratio of our staff being part of Greater-Cairo’s refugee communities, we see ourselves as informed insiders and trusted body, working on refugees’ and vulnerable groups’ behalf.
Our work aims to foster socio-economic solidarity and stability in common, and to address socio-economic concerns as well as to improve access to basic services for refugees in specific and disadvantage communities in the host –country.
Syria al-gad Relief Foundation (SGRF) strives to aid and empower refugees by providing efficient educational and health care services in addition to community development as direct respond to the communities’ needs and the obstacles they face within the Egyptian host-country.
We offer first response aid through financial and material donations, comprehensive medical services as well as a sustainable community development through education and capacity building. Together with our local and international partner-organisations, we create reasonable work opportunities to relief the overall financial situation as well as safe spaces to give children, youths and their families a space for a positive social cohesion and integration for better prospects.
In order to foster A well-designed and a responsive program, one of our main strategies is to make aware about the living conditions and daily obstacles of refugees and other vulnerable groups in Egypt. Therefore, the foundation uses active online presence in social media channels like Facebook, YouTube and Instagram to daily update our activities and projects as well as the people receiving our support in addition to updated database with registered refugees.
