New Challenge Goes Viral to Support Those Who Can’t Afford to Stay at Home



A new hashtag of a challenge is going viral among celebrities and football players, one that aims at helping out the families in need who can’t afford to leave their jobs and stay at home.

Since we’re all encouraged to stay at home as a precautionary measure to end the virus and while most of us can afford to stay at home, others simply can’t provide for their families financially.

That’s where celebrities and football players started the hashtag #تحدى_الخير and are challenging one another to do some good by taking care of the expenses of 60 families for the next 3 months!

A great initiative, one that made us regain our faith in humanity. The challenge that only started last night has already saw the participation of so many, including Ahmed El Saka, Mona Zaki, Hannah El Zahed, Ahmed El Saadany, Chico, Ahmed Fahmy, Ahmed Dawood, Trezeguet, Salma Abu Deif and way more.

For those of you longing for some outdoor activities and for events to take place once again, the Ministry of Culture is working hard on grating your wishes very soon.

The Ministry of Culture is currently preparing a study on the possibility of holding events in the open spaces of the Cairo Opera House, to be able to carry on with the cultural program while still maintaining the necessary precautionary guidelines.

According to Culture Minister Enas Abdel Dayem, it’s quite important to throw artistic and cultural events as they benefit the public taste and spread awareness regarding community issues.

But then of course, all precautionary measures and safety guidelines will be maintained to ensure the safety of artists, employees and the general public.

Abdel Dayem recently held a meeting with President of the Opera House Magdy Saber, followed by another meeting with head of the Cultural Production Sector Khaled Galal, head of the Artistic House Ismail Mokhtar and others to go over several projects that will take place once this horrific pandemic is over and life goes back to normal.

Abdel Dayem also added that new theater productions will showcase the stories of the armed forces, the police, and medical professionals and their efforts to combat coronavirus, in a sincere way of expressing gratitude.

We really can’t wait for life and activities to go back to the way they were and we have faith in the Ministry’s efforts in keeping us positive during this tough time.
