As part of its efforts to raise awareness of COVID-19 among disadvantaged and marginalised communities, the Om Habibeh Foundation (OHF) launched radio programmes, pinned posters around villages, and even distributed colouring books donated by UNICEF within the community of Aswan and 20 of the poorest villages in the area. The colouring books, for example, were designed to encourage families to spend quality time with their children while committing to physical distancing measures. In the process, it provided behavioural change tips through radio programmes and posters that were pinned in public areas across the villages.

Thank you for this post. My wife Zarina and I had the opportunity to visit Egypt including Aswan with a group of 8 many years ago and saw the wonderful work being done by Om Habibeh Foundation and also had the opportunity of lifetime to visit Imam Sultan Mahomed Shah and Mata Salamat’s Mausoleum.
The Noorani Falily’s historic connections with Egypt go back to the Fatimid Caliph-Imam al Mui’zz who founded the city of Cairo in the tenth century.
In this regard, please see the post dated June 12, 2017 compiled by a family friend and a very good researcher Nimira Dewji.
It is fortunate that first time i read about the om Habibahe Foundation Working in poor villages of the area for educational , social, cultural initatives made by the Foundation.
