About 100 people took part in the cleanup, including 2 groups of school children: one group from the Fayoum where CARE, the sponsoring organization, supports a school, and another group from one of the American schools in Maadi. There was a fundraiser at the other end of the wadi, where bikers, runners and hikers were raising money by the kilometer trekking through the park. Cadbury (white t-shirts) and Shoprite (red t-shirts) were sponsors (providing water, fruit & chocolates, as well as bodies) and the Degla sporting club provided a BBQ. (They are busy recruiting new members - gave everyone a two week pass to try out the premises). These folks being Egyptian, food was, of course, the primary and most essential organization point. We ate early and often. It was a very breezy day, good for heat control, really bad for dust and basic functions like respiration..  Posted by Hello
