Cairo has a population of 8 million people.
Most of the city's garbage is collected by Zabbaleen.
Zabbaleen is unofficial labor force which has been acting of its own volition for nearly 100 years.
They collect, sort, recycle, sell and use the garbage.
They make deal with homeowners and collect the garbage for a small fee or free.
Then they bring it to their "garbage city" outside Cairo.
Even house roofs there are full of garbage.
Zabbaleen are Coptic Christians, minority in Islamic Egypt.
With the growth of the population the city authorities decided to hire European companies to deal with garbage.
But the locals still think that Zabbaleen do it better and cheaper.

the point is that you only focus on the dirty and poverty places in Egypt and you don't show to the world the luxury places too so they get the worst idea about Egypt, Egypt has the most luxurious compounds in the world we have cars "Ferrari, Lamborghini, Audi...." so please dont have an idea about a country from images.

Yes but these luxurious places are only acessible to the elite which are about5% of the population, egypt is filled with poverty thanks to its dictator who is too busy kissing israel´s ass.
