ArtSavesLives, a fundraising initiative and digital platform helping children fight illness through art, held its first exhibit in Founders Spaces, Downtown Cairo, showcasing nearly 150 iconic art pieces auctioned online with 100% of the proceeds going to the Children’s Cancer Hospital 57357 (CCHE).
Filmmaker and ArtSavesLives Co-founder Sarah Amer stated: The idea of ArtSavesLives was born on our visit to the arts workshop of the CCHE 57357. This is where we were inspired to revolutionize the narrative on children fighting cancer by helping them tell their stories through art and find joy amidst tragedy.
She continued: I’ve been to the best hospitals in the world, and I can confidently say that CCHE 57357 is on par with, if not better, than the world’s leading pediatric cancer treatment facilities. ArtSavesLives rallies community efforts and funds to enable this great institution to continue saving thousands of children not only in Egypt but across the region.
The exhibit featured works donated by more than 50 acclaimed artists, designers, and galleries, including Mohamed Abla, Azza Fahmy, Ingy Aflatoun, George Bahgoury, Asser Yassin, and Amir Eid, among many others.
