Stressing the Role of ICT for Society: Samsung Corporate Football Tournament will raise money for Egypt’s 57357 Children’s Cancer Hospital

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. Egypt, a market leader and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics, inaugurated its second Ramadan football tournament at the Canadian International College (CIC).

The tournament which will run from the 5th to the 25th of August will see 30 teams from Egyptian companies participating in the tournament to raise money to support for the Children’s Cancer Hospital - Egypt 57357.

Two teams from Samsung will also be participating in the tournament, highlighting their dedication to supporting the hospital in buying much needed new medical equipment.

“Samsung is constantly looking for ways to give back to the Egyptian community, and what better time than to do so during Ramadan.  Given the huge success of last year’s tournament and our desire to continue to support the Children’s Cancer Hospital hosting the football tournament this year just seemed like the right thing to do.

For us at Samsung Egypt, the tournament is also a great chance for us to get out of our offices and interact with other Egyptian companies, and to be able to do that whilst helping sick children, is just great,” said Duke Park, Samsung Egypt General Manager.

Last year Samsung hosted the same tournament, doubling the revenues it generated and donating them to the Children’s Cancer Hospital 75375 in Tanta.
