Egypt is one of the most polluted countries in the region. In 1948, “Alexandria's Portland Cements Factory” was built in "Wadi El Qamar" residential area, located in the west of Alexandria. The number of people living in this area and affected by the dust of the cement factory are nearly 30,000 inhabitants, or about 50% of the population. The project aims at mobilizing a global community dedicated to supporting those people.
