|Summary||Cairo’s Saladin Citadel, a medieval Islamic fortification which crowns the rock massif of Mokattam, is considered to be one of Cairo’s most popular tourist attractions. In the very same neighbourhood, at the foot of the cliffs, lies a less agreeable district of Egypt’s capital – a place called Manshiyat Naser, a place where the untouchables live in a city of their own, better known as Garbage City.
The majority of these are Coptic Orthodox Christians. As a minority community subject to severe discrimination, here too – as religious beliefs prevent Muslims from handling refuse – the trash trade fell to the disadvantaged Coptic Christians so that today over 60,000 live from garbage segregation.
There was, however, no-one to bring spiritual care for a population caught in the mud and degeneration until one man, Fr. Samaan decided to take these on as his flock.
