Refugees in Egypt by Reem Akl
Refugees in Egypt is an on-going photo-documentary initiative that started out as Reem's bachelor project about African refugees integration in Egypt, and after being done with it, She realized that the entire social issue and topic is too important for her to be done with and move on to a new one. A year later, Reem decided to continue working on her project by documenting the lives of African refugees’ in Egypt, and hopefully soon enough she’ll be able to offer them what they fight for, and turn this project to something more than just a photo-documentary. Total of talk fees was channeled to the refugee community in Egypt; Manahel (a disabled child) as part of the cost for the wheelchair she needed.

Help-Portraits also went to a Portsaid Orphanage with Rotary PortSaid where photographer Hassan ElSayad took pictures of the children, men and women. Photopia facilitated printing the pictures and giving them back to the orphanage.
