AIS West Earthquake Relief Efforts




Together, we raised EGP 112,587 for Earthquake Relief Efforts in Collaboration with the Egyptian Red Crescent

Our school community’s generous support of our recent Earthquake Donation Drive in collaboration with the Egyptian Red Crescent (ERC) has raised EGP 112,587. This includes direct contributions to the ERC by parents and staff members. We are so proud of our National Honor Society (NHS) and High School Student Council students, whose fundraising initiatives alone collected donations totaling EGP 35,335. We would also like to thank the ERC volunteers who were available at our school for one week to talk to our students, raise awareness about the relief efforts and accept direct donations. While no amount of money can erase the pain of this tragedy, every single donation will lighten the impact left on the victims and their families.

At AIS West, we aim to foster a strong sense of social consciousness among our students, empowering them to learn how individuals can also make a difference. Supported by our leadership and teachers, our students regularly organize and participate in several donation drives and other service learning and community service initiatives. Our student-led projects support cancer research, various animal shelters in Cairo, underprivileged schools, or hospitals such as the 57357 hospital.

Well done AIS West!
