Free medical care for the poor of the West Bank
I just love this aspect of Egyptian life. Thirty five really top doctors are here in Luxor giving their time free for several days seeing poor people on the West Bank. Local business, hotels and restaurants donate money for medicine, accommodation and meals for these doctors. So really poor people get to see the creme de la creme of the medical profession and don't have to pay a penny. This is the heart of Egypt and why I moved here and love living here in Luxor.
