CAIRTO – 29 June 2017: President Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi will inaugurate eight national projects in the Nile Delta’s Kafr El-Sheikh governorate during celebrations of the fourth anniversary of the June 30 events, Kafr El-Sheikh Governor Al-Said Nasr said Thursday.


The projects include fish farming in the Berka Ghalion, development of Burullus Lake, three hospitals, two drinking water stations and a STEM school, Nasr added.

Fish farming has been established on an area of 2,500 feddans (1 feddan = 1.038 acres) and will provide 15,000 job opportunities, the governor added, noting that the project will increase Egypt’s fish production from 40 percent to 70 percent.

Kafr El-Sheikh University Hospital, Burullus Hospital and Sidi Ghazi Hospital will also be inaugurated. The university hospital is equipped with 433 beds, 12 emergency units, 63 beds for intensive care units and 13 operating rooms. The cost of the project is worth LE 360 million (around $19.8 million), the governor continued.

On June 30, 2013, million-man protests were staged nationwide calling for the ouster of former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi. Three days later, Morsi was ousted.
