CAIRO – 31 March 2020: A group of stars launched a campaign named Breathe to provide aid and donations to patients of coronavirus. A large number of stars participated in this campaign, in addition to swimming champion Farida Othman and businessman Naguib Sawiris.
The campaign was initially launched by famed star Yousra through a video uploaded on her official Instagram. “Take a deep breath! What is happening is not the fault of a specific country.
