Dr. Mamdouh Ghorab, Governor of Sharqia, confirmed to NCHR delegation his appreciation for the efforts made to follow up and activate the complaints system, the human rights unit in the governorate, and all branches of ministries and departments within the scope of Sharqia Governorate.
The delegation also met with executive officials within the governorate, where it made a field visit to a number of government hospitals, service facilities, and care homes, to determine the level of services provided to citizens, and to ensure the application of human rights standards and achieve the goals of the National Human Rights Strategy launched by the President of the Republic in September, 2021.
Dr. Ayman Mukhtar, Governor of Dakahlia, also received NCHR delegation headed by Professor Dr. Mohamed Mamdouh, NCHR Member and Secretary of the NCHR Economic Committee.
This is to discuss and follow up on the complaints system in the governorate and activate the National Human Rights Strategy and the extent of positive development of the human rights situation in the governorate, in the presence of Dr. Wael Abdel Aziz, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Social Solidarity in Dakahlia.
Dr. Mohamed Mamdouh, a member of NCHR, confirmed that the development we have seen in the human rights situation in the governorate reflects the interest of the Governor of Dakahlia in activating the comprehensive concept of human rights in the governorate in a way that ensures the implementation of the axes of the National Human Rights Strategy, and certainly the governorate’s interest in dealing with the complaints system and developing unconventional solutions to ensure the sustainability of enhancing quality, services provided to citizens within the framework of building the new republic.
The Governor stressed that one of the strongest human rights initiatives that Egypt has witnessed over the past years is President Sisi’s "Hayat Karima" (Decent Life) initiative to provide all services to our people in the Egyptian countryside. This is a precedent that has never happened before, as it guarantees the provision of services to more than 60% of the Egyptian people.
Mokhtar pointed out that Dakahlia deals with the comprehensive concept of human rights from all aspects to provide services of all kinds, including medical services in hospitals and establishing offices for citizen and patient services inside hospitals, in addition to many initiatives to reduce prices and provide all strategic goods to citizens.
