The Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources (MoPMR) has completed the renovation and delivery of 100 houses in the villages of Abu Simbel and Karnak in the Al-Nahda area in Amriya, Alexandria Governorate.
This comes in cooperation between Sidi Kerir Petrochemical Company (Sidpec) and the Orman Association, within the framework of implementing the main objectives of the Supreme Committee for Social Responsibility in the Petroleum Sector
Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El Molla launched the renovations’ work strategy in order to accelerate the implementation of priority community projects in the surrounding neighborhoods.
The final phase was delivered at Sidpec’s headquarters in Alexandria and includes 33 houses for the residents of the villages of Abu Simbel and Karnak.
The Al-Nahda Villages Development Initiative project is exemplary for its role in raising the efficiency and enhancing the social contribution of the petroleum sector in its areas of operation. This is especially the case after the petroleum sector’s new strategy for corporate social responsibility was executed, catering to the neediest villages and working to achieve sustainable development. It also makes a positive contribution to the Hayah Karima (“Decent Life”) presidential initiative.
