Description

The Ministry of Social Solidarity (MoSS) is the government body responsible for providing social safety networks for Egypt's most vulnerable citizens.

The MoSS was founded on the 20th of August 1939 through a royal decree issued
by King Fouad, and has changed names and specialties according to the preferences of
different rulers. It has been known as the Ministry of Social Affairs, the Ministry of
Social Affairs and Social Insurance, the Ministry of Social Solidarity and Social Justice.
It was merged and separated from the Ministry of Supply and Internal Trade many times;
however, throughout its history, its main mandate remained centered around the social
wellbeing and welfare of citizens.
