ACDI/VOCA Resumes Operations in Egypt

With civic disruptions abating, ACDI/VOCA has resumed most operations in Egypt. Its offices in Aswan, Borg Al Arab, Cairo and Qena have reopened, and staff are reporting to work.

“We are proceeding with development projects that are needed now more than ever,” says ACDI/VOCA President Carl Leonard.

“We’ll continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and act to keep employees and stakeholders safe,” he adds. “There is clearly a need to restart farming and business activities that can help bring stability and economic prosperity to our beneficiaries.”
