On the tenth of Ramadan, our children, 57357’s heroes, celebrated the anniversary of the 1973 war victory with the war heroes and a delegation from the 73 Group-Historians. The attendees were headed by Major General Dr. Mahmoud Khalaf, the Nasser Academy advisor, former Commander of the republican guard, and one of the Special Forces heroes in the wars of attrition and of 73.
A big number of children welcomed the visitors in a delightful celebration. The celebration started with a speech by Major General Mahmoud Khalaf where he talked about the war heroes and what they did in 73 to retrieve our occupied land. He said that October war and our children’s fight against cancer are similar battles in favor of Egypt’s sons and their future.
Mr. Ahmed Zayed, the founder and head of the board of trustees of 73 Group-Historians, gave a speech where he expressed his pleasure for his presence in such a grand endeavor, and stressed on the mutual cooperation with the hospital that started four years ago. The group used to support the hospital through organizing seminars and inviting our children to visit important war locations such as the Sues Canal, and the Barlev line, to educate them about the victories of war heroes and how they shaped the history and future of the Nation. He expressed his pleasure to celebrate with our children that day( 73 war victory which back then corresponded to the 10th of Ramadan) and which coincides with the tenth anniversary of the establishment of the group.
After the celebration, Egypt’s heroes visited our children in their rooms and handed them nice gifts provided jointly through “Nebras Foundation for Peace and Development” and “Draw a Smile” Association.
A precious visit from the heroes who exerted all efforts to defend Egypt’s land and people, being icons of courage and determination for our children.
