The Enterprise Development Authority, a charity partner since the Hospital’s inception
Dr. Abdel Salam shared with attendees facts relative to the project: “this grant is one more initiative by MSMEDA , our charity partner, on the path it has embarked on to support and collaborate with 57357 since the inception of the Hospital. The Enterprise Development Authority (previously titled the Social Fund for Development) offered us a chance to train and develop the first calibers to work for the Hospital before its opening. To continue the charity journey, the Authority supported this project through which 236 trainees were selected to cover the Hospital’s needs of well qualified manpower. Through this project, we have introduced new positions at the laundry department. Moreover, through the trained calibers of the project in IT and Hospital security departments, we could exchange experiences and training with some governmental and nongovernmental Hospitals. We are looking for more cooperation in the future, to train our healthcare staff on latest medical and administrative practices and to support our fellowship training programs in collaboration with the top world medical institutions.
It is noteworthy that the project is a grant from The Enterprise Development Authority dedicated to support civil society organizations in training young calibers. Hospital 57357 received the grant on 2016 where the fund were allocated to train young calibers in areas that meet the needs of 57357 foundation and that of the Association of Friends of the National Cancer-free Initiative , AFNCI. The project was completed at the end of November 2017 where 236 trainees were selected out of 400 applicants. The selection was made according to a work plan set up through the collaborative effort of the departments of HR, education and development, nurses’ continuous education and AFNCI’s IT department.
Mrs. Nevin Gamea, Director of the Enterprise Development Authority: it is a pleasure to support the training of calibers capable of working as one team to contribute to the sustainability and success of 57357
Mrs. Gamea expressed her happiness saying: words cannot express my happiness and pride because we could dedicate the World Bank’s fund to train 200 calibers to join 57357’s work force. Offering qualified medical and administrative staff to join 57357’s work team will contribute to the great Hospital’s success and continuity so that we can achieve our big dream of a cancer free childhood.
At the end of the celebration, in appreciation of her efforts in completing the project, the Hospital’s trophy was given to Mrs. Game, besides honoring the project’s work team and outstanding trainees in different section.
