Sadness and anger in Egypt farewell to the girl Shorouk, the victim of the contagion
Cairo- While Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi was preparing to talk to the world’s youth at a conference in Sharm El-Sheikh last week, Shorouk went out with Nada, Doaa, Zainab, Zakaria, Muhammad, Hajar, Saeed and other children, the oldest of whom was 15 years old, from their homes in a village in Menoufia Governorate in the Delta of Egypt, to work on one of the farms in exchange for 50 pounds a day (less than $4) to help their families cope with the hardships of life.
After a long day of hard work, and on their return almost simultaneously with the entertainment “The Magician” that was presented at the Sharm El-Sheikh Forum, which was attended by President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and senior officials in Egypt, the car carrying the children slipped off a ferryboat crossing a river Nile River, which resulted in their fall into the river, killing 9 people, while 14 people came out alive.
For a whole week, the mother of the 13-year-old girl, Shorouk, was sitting on the bank of the river, waiting for him to give her the body of her child, who had no other left after the bodies of the rest of the victims were recovered, until the rescue efforts succeeded yesterday, Monday, in finding Shorouk, 5 kilometers from the scene of the accident. Thousands of people from her village and neighboring villages bid her farewell in a majestic scene.
The martyr of the halal bite
Shorouk’s farewell did not stop at the people of her village, but continued on social networking sites in Egypt, amid a wide wave of sadness and anger over the “martyr of the halal bite.”
The pioneers of the communication sites interacted with Shorouk’s departure, expressing their deep sadness at her departure, and a number of them confirmed that her innocent features refuse to leave their imagination, and that her pain leave their heart.
The tweeters circulated Umm Shorouk’s description of her, “His two brothers lived and his drowning died,” coupled with previous statements by the Egyptian president, including “the pockets are filled and billions remain like a deck,” expressing their anger at the crises experienced by the poor in Egypt, which led to children of this age leaving to work in search of Few pounds.
Egypt in a picture..
The good, beautiful, painful Egypt
The martyr of the halal bite of the little girl Shorouk
Why isn’t a road, axis, bridge or street named after her?
She is undoubtedly more honorable than many whose names have been raised and they were honored with their hands stained with the blood of the sons of this honorable people#martyr_of_the_laqa_halal#Rise#baby_sunrise pic.twitter.com/i5vwpSo5Zb

A week after it sank
The body of the girl “Shorouk”, the last victim of the Qanater ferry accident, was found.
Shorouk was working on a poultry farm for 10 hours a day, from 25 to 50 pounds, in a country that spends trillions on bridges, prisons, and licentious appearances.#in_paradise_ya_sunrise pic.twitter.com/m1Z7VklIQZ

I said 3 days ago, I can’t get over the picture of the baby, Shorouk, may God have mercy on her
Her features hurt me, and God is sufficient for me, and He is the best agent
He is the avenger of every unjust who stole her, and with her, their childhood and taught them misery early
My only consolation is that it is a fleeting world, and that most of the people of Paradise are among the poor.

“The little girl #sunrise_yasser
She went out to work to help her family
She came back dead
After 7 days in the water
Her mother commented on her death in public
“My daughter lived his misery and died drowning”
while he says
It has the head of the system
The pockets are full
And billions left
The cocktail, O Kamal
He builds palaces and buys planes
and support the people.” pic.twitter.com/V6EeGAJ3C1

victim of bullying
In her statements to the “Sada Al-Balad” website, Shorouk’s mother said that she is a student in the second year of middle school and went out in order to save the expenses of private lessons, adding that Shorouk wished to complete her education and be an officer in the army as she used to watch them on TV, but she was relieved of the world and its concern.
She confirmed that she went out two months ago in order to work and save her expenses, as Shorouk asked her to go to the employer who delivers them daily, but he assured her that her child is still small, but knowing that she wants to complete her education, he agreed to work with him two months ago .
According to the Egyptian (governmental) newspaper Al-Ahram, the cause of the accident was due to the driver’s failure to control the brakes at the moment it climbed over the ferry that crosses the Nile, which led to the car falling from the other side, submerged in the waters of the Nile.
It turned out that the car was carrying 23 children, between boys and girls, no more than 15 years old, working on a poultry farm, and that upon their return from work, the car skidded from the top of a ferryboat belonging to the Qanater facility in the Nile River, causing it to fall with its passengers in the river.
And the Public Prosecution said – in a statement published on its Facebook page last Saturday – that the driver who caused the Qanater facility accident, which left two dead on the spot, with 8 missing as a result of getting into an “unlicensed ferryboat” in the Nile, was arrested, and the police arrested 3 Workers at the offending facility.
