We are committed to fighting poverty in all its shapes and forms by developing creative solutions that sustainably improve the quality of life of the poorest members of our society.
Sectors of operation:
– Food and Nutrition
Food baskets and meals are provided throughout the year for the needy, while during the holy month of Ramadan, we provide over 3,000 meals per day.\
– Halayeb & Shalateen
Halayeb and Shalateen are the last cities in the south of the Red Sea Governorate near the Egyptian-Sudanese border. Despite being a relatively unknown town in an overlooked part of Egypt, Shalateen has an interesting story. Its people hail from different parts of the world, including Sudan and the Arabian Peninsula, and they made the area their home a long time ago.
Over the last year, Resalet Nour ala Nour (NGO) distributed 8000 boxes of food to families who have settled by the southern seaside, the outskirts of the surrounding landscape, and further into the desert and near the mountains of Shalateen. The majority of the population still live in wooden shacks made of sheets of compressed wood with no access to water, food or electricity.
This year was just the beginning, as we continue to strive in expanding our efforts to provide our brothers in the south with their basic needs, aiming to improve the living conditions and help them live a more fulfilling life.
– Housing, Infrastructure, Water, and Sanitation
We help underprivileged communities by building roofs and walls, painting houses, and installation of housing components. In addition, we fight consequences of poor hygiene and unsafe water by constructing holes for sanitation structures and storage units, delivering clean drinking water to those in need.

Arab Sarab village:
In 2007, we opened our first educational center in Arab Sarab. The center provides high-quality education for more than 150 students. In addition, we contributed to the improvement and development of the residence. This project took place in Shabramant, Egypt. The aim was to help the neighborhood with some renovation and painting houses, walls in order to improve the area and create a more pleasant and welcoming environment.
– Education and Awareness
We have built an educational center “Arab Sarab” in Sakarra accommodating more than 150 students. The center provides a good-quality education to help the children achieve their highest potential. Our approach begins with giving every child the best start in life. We have qualified and trained teachers to prepare them for a strong educational foundation for a better future. We have recently opened our second educational center “Arab Guinidi” after witnessing how eager those children were to learn once they were given a chance.
In addition, we help perform critical school repairs and assist with the construction of brand new classrooms in Upper Egypt. Some of these activities involve plumbing and carpentry related tasks.
