Been very busy filming on the subject of Egyptian Identity, community development and Medical clinic at the Mosque El Rabeeh, the status of christians in Egypt and the myth that they are not welcome and live a live of burden under the Egyptian’s.
Unfortunately no progress has been made in home village of Uwlela in regards to garbage. Many people still throw it in the street, burn it, including plastic and because it was thrown in the water on a regular basis, the government has decided to put a concrete canal in it’s place and cover it with Earth. No longer are there beautiful trees, and no longer can people throw garbage into the water.
Why are there no garbage cans lining the main street? I could go on but in short I plan to change this.
I plan to organize a garbage collection from the streets after friday prayers. Anyone willing to assist us is of course welcome. I hope to educate people that as Muslims, we are required to be clean. The Mosque can educate young and old. We can show by action that we can clean the village. If I need to do it alone at first I will. I will also drive it to dump the garbage if anyone stops us from dropping off the garbage at the central location for pickup.
I want to write more, but there’s much to do. God Speed.
