See It Yourself, Do It Yourself Charity

By Mohamed Mansour

800 sick children with fatal and incurable blood diseases (Sicke Cell Anemia, Thalassemia, Haemophilia) need medicine on a daily basis to live. The Red Crescent Blood Bank on 29 Gala St. Ramses is giving people a chance to help out by allowing those who are interested to buy subsidized hospital-priced medicine for these children as well as getting to know them personally. For more information or if you want to donate blood and/or money call me, Muhammad Mansour, the Red Crescent Volunteer Representative of AUC at 0106588635

Take Part in This Fall’s Wadi Degla Cleanup by Joining the Biology Club and the Environmental Awareness Association on Friday, Nov. 9th .

Wadi Degla is a beautiful protectorate just outside Maadi, but its beauty is masked by thousands upon thousands of plastic bags blown into it from the city and the nearby recycling factory. Every semester, the Biology Club and the EAA organize a cleanup to clear the most beautiful part of the Wadi of plastic bags. (If you join us, you may also get a chance to explore a bat cave.)   


Limited Seats! Refreshments Will Be Provided. Fees Between 10 and 20 L.E. MIGHT Be Required. If interested, please contact Maha Khalil at or Ali Fahmi at
