Besides its importance for the Ottoman Empire, the 1853-1856 War was very important for England, France and Russia. England and France attended the war with the Ottoman Empire in order to stop Russia's progress and ensure the continuity of their benefits in the Ottoman Empire. The Empire was in a bad situation in terms of its military and financial situation. Firstly a general aid campaign was organized and when it was understood that this campaign wasn't enough, states were required to pay more to supply all the needs. Different from the other states, as Egypt had army and navy forces, helped the Ottoman Empire significantly before and during the war. Egyptian soldiers who were seriously wounded and martyrs were paid equal amounts of salaries and given help. It was especially important for the Empire to treat equally and satisfy all the needs of Egyptian soldiers and families of the martyrs.
