As we are based in Luxor Egypt we feel that as a company we should help others where we can.
With so many different charities you can feel sometimes a bit at a loss on who you should support! Over the years we have seen many charities come and go but a few have have stood the test of time and continue to do amazing work today.
Below we have two charities that we feel everyone needs to know about and the fantastic job that they do to help the people and animals of Luxor….
The idea for SunShine began in 1992 with the dream of one woman – Pearl Smith
By 1996 Pearl and an Egyptian colleague, Dr Amr Taha had founded the SunShine Project. Pearl set up a home in Egypt for the abandoned children of Luxor and founded a trust in the UK to support the project.
In 1999 the SunShine Project became a registered charity in Egypt. The effect was that the UK charity became the funder and the Egyptian charity the service provider.
Their Vision and Aim…
To be the leading Charity in Egypt; to expand our work to help the many needy and desperate children throughout Egypt; and to provide every child with equal rights, equal care, equal love and equal opportunities from the moment they are born.

Animal Care in Egypt is a charity dedicated to helping stop the suffering of the animals in the poorest communities of Luxor by providing free veterinary care and education.
For almost 15 years we have been providing free veterinary care to help animals when they need it most. This is, alongside preventative treatments and education, delivering a long term impact on the welfare of working animals and the Luxor community that depend on them so greatly for their livelihoods. Last year we helped over 26,000 animals.
