Egypt: Children and Families at Risk
At least 16.7 million children live in poverty in Egypt, a total of 9.2 million living in extreme poverty. Extreme poverty in Egypt is classified as earning less than $US 1.40 per day. In Cairo, there are about 600,000 street kids and many are living in the slums, about 300 of them in the city of over 20 million. Inhabitants of these areas suffer from lack of basic services, they have no electricity, water pipes or sewage system. Living on the streets has significant, life-long consequences for the children’s physical and mental health.
