Palestinians face daily struggle in Egypt

Palestinian refugees do not have access to free medical care or education, creating cycle of poverty.

    For the nearly 70,000 Palestinian refugees living in Egypt, life is far from easy, as most of them live in a legal limbo subject to travel restrictions.

    About 3,500 Palestinians, who live in mud-houses in Geziret Fadel village, face a daily struggle.

    The majority of families can not afford to send their children to school, creating a generation of illiterate youngsters trapped in a cycle of poverty.

    Despite this, many are just grateful to be allowed to stay in the country.
