The Nile serves as Egypt's primary water source. It is significant to the economy as it supports fishing and agriculture and impacts all the countries it flows through. Reham is one of the lucky people who had the chance to participate in the Nile Clean-up campaign.
Reham Attia, The British Council Egypt Environmental Framework Coordinator, participated in the longest campaign to clean the Nile. The campaign was organised by the Youth Love Egypt Foundation, on September 29, 2022, this campaign initiative was delivered in partnership with the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation, the Ministry of Local Development and the Ministry of Youth and Sports, with the participation of all 16 governorates overlooking the Nile.
The campaign succeeded in collecting 342 kilos of waste from Cairo to be recycled immediately. It is considered the largest in the world, along the Nile River from Aswan to Damietta and there is a plan to have it included in the Guinness World Records.
Reham was our lucky hero today.
