Egypt: Help for Landslide Victims

Egyptian blogger Zeinobia provides information about how people can help the victims of a mudslide landslide in a poor neighbourhood in Cairo. “We will not count on the government alone,” she notes.


  • I think the term mudslide is not accurate. The term landslide would have been, as there have been no rain to cause the soil to soften and flow. What happened is that the rocks fell, for some unknown reasons, killing and trapping tens of people.

  • Thanks Mostafa! Blame it on rusty geography.
    It really is unfortunate. Our sympathies and prayers to those families at such a difficult time.
