THURSDAY KUDOS- Egypt sends medical aid to India + Dutch embassy, Alexbank set up incubation programs

Egypt sent 30 tonnes of medical aid to India, including 300 oxygen cylinders and 100 hospital beds, to help the country contend with a devastating surge in covid-19 cases, according to a statement. India’s health system and cremation services have been overrun with an unprecedented surge in covid cases, with over 357.2k cases being added to the count yesterday bringing the total to over 20.3 mn, reports CNBC.

The Dutch embassy in Egypt and AlexBank are setting up two business incubation programs, called Orange Corners, to train 15-25 entrepreneurs in Cairo and Assiut, according to a statement. While putting a special emphasis on startups focused on agriculture and innovation, at least half of the initiative’s participants will be women entrepreneurs.
