Luxor, Egypt is the world’s most treasured antiquities sites. It is on the exclusive UNESCO World Heritage Site List. Unfortunately the city of Luxor is facing many problems. Urban sprawl threatens historical sites as well as agricultural land. Many parts of the city is lacking infrastructure. Uncontrolled cruise traffic gave raise to serious environmental problems, such as sewerage and other discharges from the vessels. Luxor needs to fight all these issues to maintain its viability as a desired tourist destination, and accommodate the rapid expansion of tourism and agriculture. Due to all these threats, Luxor city has been witnessing a lot of development in the last two years which has involved moving some of the locals out of the houses to new areas.
One of the small orphanages of Luxor is called the Holy Book orphanage and has 26 boys had to move to another building as their old house had to be pulled down since part of the avenue of sphinxes that used to connect between the temples of Luxor & Karnak. The new building still needs a lot of work to put it in a good shape make it suitable of the children there. Their needs range between sheets, toys, to desks, beds and chairs. Part of the price of this trip will go as a donation to support the needs of the orphanage.
