Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, in coordination with the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), launched service campaigns and public development initiatives Friday, January 18, in provinces around the country. Those began with a number of medical convoys and charitable sales of food and clothes in several districts in each province.

In a press statement today, Hassan Fathallah, media coordinator for the campaign in Alexandria, said: "This service campaign for the people of Alexandria is something the Muslim Brotherhood has been doing every year for long decades. The FJP has now joined it to help ease the burden on our country people in this province.

"Today (Friday), about 80,000 citizens visited our convoys, which comprises some 15 health-care convoys covering all medical specialties, in addition to 70 charity markets for food and clothing in most areas and neighborhoods of Alexandria."

In Aswan, the FJP campaign 'Your Health Matters' including four medical convoys based in Edfu, Ezbet Al-Askar, Alfozah, and Al-Domaria. The convoys covered specialties such as Orthopedics, Dermatology, Surgery, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Pulmonology, Ophthalmology, Obstetrics and Gynecology. 

The convoys also conducted medical and laboratory tests and provided the majority of medications free of charge. A number of distinguished doctors joined the convoys, which helped approximately 3250 patients in all specialties.

Dr. Mohamed Abdel-Fattah, the medical convoys’ general coordinator, said: "This is a permanent, regular campaign in all main districts of the province, a confirmation of the FJP's keenness to fully side with citizens in Aswan, especially those who cannot afford medical treatment or healthcare."

In the Sixth of October (satellite city of Cairo), the Brotherhood organized a charitable flea market for food commodities and used clothing, after Friday prayers, in front of Mohamed Imad Mosque. The market runs for two days, from nine o'clock in the morning until nine in the evening, to help ease the burdens of living for citizens and households, spreading the spirit of solidarity among members of the Egyptian people.

The Brotherhood also launched a Charitable Pavilion campaign for the sale of meat at discounted prices, in the Fifth District at 37 Egyptian Pounds (approx. US$5.5) per kilogram, just a little more than half the normal price. The Pavilion proved very popular, with a large turnout of citizens of the neighborhood, where more than half a ton of meat was sold.
