Egypt is a key transit and destination country for African and Middle Eastern refugees and migrants, many of whom have been subjected to violence or persecution in their countries.

The number of migrants arriving in Egypt has risen sharply in recent years due to conflict and instabilities in Syria, Iraq, Sudan, South Sudan, Eritrea, Somalia, Libya and several other countries.

Migrants are struggling with poor services integration, limited employment opportunities and difficulties in accessing healthcare due to diminishing funding.

Many migrants have been subjected to violence and exploitation in their home countries or during their journeys to Egypt and have psychological problems and physical disabilities.

We have developed individual rehabilitative treatment plans for these patients, consisting of medical and mental health assistance, physiotherapy and social support.
