HSBC 2016 – Present: In a long-term partnership with HSBC, A&A has helped set up mobile libraries in hospitals like El-Demerdash Children’s Hospital, The National Institute for Cancer in Cairo and El Shatby Public Hospital in Alexandria.

The support also includes training the hospital’s social-care staff and volunteers, as well as HSBC volunteers on library and book related activities.
