Kia Donates US $205K to Children’s Cancer Hospital in Egypt November 23rd, 2012
Earlier this month Kia Motors’ Regional Headquarters for the Middle East & Africa along with its respective distributors made a $205,000 USD contribution to Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt ‘57357’ (CCHE) in Cairo, Egypt.
Founded in 2007, CCHE is one of the largest children’s cancer hospitals in the world, whose purpose is to provide free treatment for those in need. It is solely funded by charitable donations and the hospital’s ‘57357 name’ is also the bank account number to which donations can be sent, and aptly serves as a public reminder of its philanthropic support engine.

Kia management attended the official donation ceremony which was held at CCHE in Cairo. The group toured the hospital’s facilities and witnessed firsthand how CCHE is creating a new healthcare system and becoming an icon of change and beacon of hope for millions of families.

Kia Motors donation to CCHE is the latest in a series of recent aid and involvement programs in the Middle East & Africa region, including its $13 million USD ‘Green Light Project’, which was launched this past August in Tanzania, and aims to improve the social mobility of needy children through accessible education and healthcare programs. Kia plans to expand the Green Light Project to other countries and regions through the cooperation of its global network, and its next project will take place in the southeast African nation of Malawi.
