Conflict brings charities to a halt in Cairo

A government crackdown has strangled welfare centres linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Cairo’s poorest neighbourhoods are both the heart of Muslim Brotherhood support and the place where most of its affiliated charities work.

But earlier this week, the Egyptian Central Bank froze the funds of more than 1,000 non-governmental organizations, in response to a September court ruling that ordered the disbanding of the Muslim Brotherhood and the confiscation of assets and funds of any of its affiliates.
