“We are proud to partner with SOKNA and to offer all the benefits of its services to syndicate members,” Zaky said.

“We and SOKNA share the same vision regarding the importance of honoring the deceased, and making the whole process as smooth and hassle-free as possible for families and loved ones, and no one does it better than the SOKNA team.”

“SOKNA’s professionalism and attention to detail are unparalleled, and the fantastic level of service provided by the company has been proven in several occasions,” said actress Nihal Anbar, Medical File Officer for the Syndicate of Representative Professions.

This was especially evident at the funerals of many great artists such as Samir Sabry, Suhair al-Bably, Aida Abdel Aziz, Galal Fahmy, Zaki Fateen Abdel Wahab and many other icons that SOKNA helped the syndicate honor, she said.

“We are happy and proud to sign this partnership with the Acting Professions Syndicate.

“Our mission at SOKNA is to honor loved ones we have lost while making sure that the family is not exhausted in any logistical effort when dealing with the death, so we launched a pre-planning program where people can decide what kind of service they want to receive, so families can focus on the memories and legacy of loved ones.”
