Fundraising for an Orphanage
Dr Sherief Elsayed is currently raising funds for an orphanage. The aim of the orphanage is:
To provide children with a safe, nurturing environment in which they can develop.
To provide children, who have been deprived of a start in life many of us would wish for our own children, with education and skills that support both themselves and the orphanage, such as:
- Painting and Decorating
- Tourism (guides)…and many more
Dr Sherief Elsayed believes that all children, regardless of where they are born or their background, have aptitudes for certain skills that might never be realized. The aim of the orphanage is to bring out those aptitudes, in order to allow those children the best start in life possible.
Children interested in medicine or other forms of healthcare, engineering, computer science and other industries will be offered sponsorships to help them develop the skills required to help not only themselves but their local communities.
