The largest parade of trucks consisted of 480 trucks and was achieved by Tahya Misr Fund (Egypt), in Cairo, Egypt, on 20 November 2020.
With a length of 7.5 km, Tahya Misr Fund was able to organize a parade of 480 trucks, amid the harsh weather and heavy rain, breaking the Guinness World Records title for the largest parade of trucks, which was achieved 16 years ago in the Netherlands with a parade size of 416 trucks, thus the Tahya Misr Fund became the new record holder.
As per Guinness World Records guidelines, each truck consisted of a tractor, with an unladen weight of at least 3.5 metric tonnes, that pulled a trailer behind it. The parade route was over 2 miles long and took place on a closed road.
Organizing the parade for the largest parade of trucks in the world comes within the framework of the fund's campaign “We Share for tomorrow” to support one million needy families during the winter season, and supply them with food, blankets and clothes to protect them from the harsh winter, as the distributed aid worths one billion EGP.
Tahya Misr Fund works to provide various means of support to the needy and most vulnerable families, through a set of initiatives and activities that provide social protection for these families by receiving financial and in-kind donations, in partnership with many institutions and individuals that adopt social responsibility programs, as the Fund’s convoys in general target orphans, people with special needs, breadwinners females, widows and children of female prisoners, as well as the protection of homeless children.
It is worth noting that the "We Share for tomorrow" campaign, the largest humanitarian convoy in the world, has also achieved two other Guinness World Records titles, with the largest donation of chicken, as well as the largest donation of hunger relief packages in the world.
