Awareness-raising and Education

Together for protecting our children from cancerous organic pollutants: raising public awareness on POPs in Egypt

In Egypt, the historical usage of pesticides and POPs has led to an increase in the number of cancer patients and patients with kidney failure, in addition to reported cases of food poisoning-especially among children in rural areas. To bring light to this situation, the Environmental Pioneers Association organized four public awareness-raising workshops in Alexandria with a total of 210 participants including farmers, university professors, doctors, NGOs and executive officials from Alexandria Governorate and involved ministries.
