Egyptian Volunteers Launch Nile Cleanup

CAIRO – More than 200 Egyptian volunteers started collecting washed-up waste Saturday from the banks of the Nile in the Egyptian capital as part of the Very Nile project that aims to clean the ancient waterway.

The volunteers managed to remove vast amounts of plastic waste that had accumulated on the banks and waters of the river.

“It’s a job we have to do in cooperation with the government, which doesn’t take part in this campaign but at least has given us its support,” Mostafa Habib, organizer of the project, told EFE.

With their hands and nets, the volunteers and local fishermen in 30 boats removed the waste mixed with algae and water lilies, according to an EFE-EPA photojournalist.

The volunteers intend to give the river a monthly cleaning from Cairo to Aswan in southern Egypt.
