A few years ago, the Ahmed Allam village in Beni Suef witnessed a roaring fire that engulfed entire houses and left a shocking trail of devastation and severe injuries to some of the residents. According to our field study, one of the main causes of the fire was the lack of security and safety measures in and around the village. In addition, our studies also found that there had been an overall lack of knowledge among the village’s population about fire prevention and first aid.
Driven by our vision to greatly minimise, and hopefully abolish burn injuries entirely, Ahl Masr launched the Safe Village program in 2015, in collaboration with the Red Cross and the Civil Defence authority.
