Mubarak’s Achievements

Our country breaks the world with its record in corruption indicators among officials, ranking 115 among 134 countries.

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in Egypt has become a major public health problem. Alarming rates were reported for many African nations, reaching as high as 14.5% in Egypt.

Bread became a symbol of inequality in Egypt.

The city also suffers from water pollution as sewage system tends to fail and overflow. On occasion, sewage has escaped onto the streets to cause health problems.

The government has threatened to reduce food subsidies.

The nonstop increase in the prices of the Gas pipelines.

In a report from the Rural Studies center for the year 2008, statistics shows the following

  • Egypt has 48 million poor, 2 and a half million in extreme poverty and 45% under the poverty line.
  • The unemployment rate reached 22% of the laborers
  • 12 millions have no shelters & 2 millions live in cemeteries as per the central agency for public mobilization and statistics
  • 46% of the population do not have the basic needs to live.. No food & clean water is one of their biggest dreams.

These are some pictures i photographed in Egypt while working as a photojournalist for Al Masry Al Youm Newspaper from 2008 till 2011 .

    قال أبو ذر الغفاري “عجبت لمن لا يجد قوت يومه , كيف لا يخرج على الناس شاهرا سيفه ”
    ” I wondered those who don’t find their daily food , how they manage not to arise wielding their swords .. ”
    and finally it had to be , and finally it just happened , for those who suffered the lake of simple meanings of humanity life and their circumstances forced them to live in such a miserable world .. now it’s time for them to live a honorable life and breath what they’ve always missed ..
    Ahmed Hayman … you reflected a reality that exists among us with a very dramatic vision and a very honest expressions and you will always carry with your photos a strong message to everyone … God bless you dear .
