Charity is an important part of our life and if you try to thinking about the concept or the real meaning of charity you will know the fact of this word .
Undoubtedly communities are built on the basis of good values and ethics too .
From my point of view Is it a good idea for celebrities to do work for charity because, celebrities can bring alot of money to poor people in our socity specially in the developing countries by attending charity events .

KORBA square in MISR ELGADEDA area it is a very amazing place in CAIRO, EGYPT and if you are planing to visit EGYPT you should go there.
ELKORBA square was built in the king Farouk age and who was the king of EGYPT and SUDAN too . This period was consider as a golden age in the egyption history .
Ofcourse you can see the magic touch on the buildings design. The places there such as restaurants , bakery stores and the streets planning structure are perfect too.
You can smell baked and morning breeze in the same time .
really , if you do not coming to EGYPT you are most welcome but, finally you should planning to see this place .

Hello mahahssn,

Are you still having trouble listening to the podcast? Have you tried downloading it and then listening to it? A few months ago there was a similar problem and I thought we had fixed it, but perhaps it has gone wrong again. Please let us know and we'll try to fix it.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

All the best,
