Wherever you are in Egypt, you will find them and deal with them in stores, malls, and restaurants, they are buying, selling, and owning property. Their number, according to Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS) , approached 10 million refugees, from Libya, Sudan, Iraq, Yemen, Syria, and Lebanon. They got family, love, and generosity in Egypt.

Egypt is the big heart in its Arab homeland and in its black continent. The world changes, the challenges change, bit Egypt remains the mother of the world as described by President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, who always support the brothers.... So Egypt represent the helping hand and refuge. Everyone rushed to it the difficult times of distress, wars, internal conflicts, climate anger in the form of floods and earthquakes.

 Official statistics announced by Major General Khairat Barakat, head of the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics, say that the number of refugees in Egypt reaches about 9 million people, including 4 million Sudanese citizens, according to the latest statistics before the recent Sudanese crisis, and this number has doubled after the crisis.

As for the Syrian citizens, their number has reached 1.5 million ones with official status as refugees, and with marriage from the Egyptians and making families, this number has doubled more thank once, as they opened shops. 

I can easily say that the number of refugees in Egypt is equivalent to the number of 3 or 4 European countries, and the pressures on Egypt were not limited to the refugees, but rather the Egyptians coming back from these regions, especially after the outbreak of the Russian-Ukrainian war and conflicts in other places in Iraq, Syria and Yemen and in Africa, especially Sudan and Libya!

Well, there is no country in the world that can bear this severe pressure on its facilities, services, and resources, and the time has come for everyone to join hands and stand beside Egypt, which is bearing beyond its capacity amid suffering from a crushing economic crisis that the whole world is going through. However, Egypt is supporting its brothers by receiving them or sending aid in thousands of tons of food and medical supplies,  such as it did with Libya and Morocco.

Egypt accommodates, contains, helps and receives everyone... but the countries of the world must stand by it and support it, this is its right. It is enough that all these guests whom Egypt received did not flee to European countries that suffer from the scourges of illegal immigration and set up camps and tents for refugees.

Egypt will always be the mother of the world.
