LIV Real Estate and Carousel decided to do something a bit different this year by planning their FIRST EVER VIRTUAL SOHOUR.
This Ramadan they decided to flip things a bit since the world is flipped already! The Sohour was ONLINE, due to the difficult times the world is going through…
Disco Misr, Marwan Younis, Khaled Mokhtar, Abdoul and many more along with Egypt’s top real estate developers came along to enjoy the virtual Ramadan spirit and lively vibes!
Guests were all smiles and ready to mingle on ZOOM as they enjoyed their Sohour meals together prepared with love by Taghmisa, shared some laughs and got into a singing contest while indulging in the sultry tunes of singer Osama El Hady as well as learning some new card tricks from our favorite magician Shico Emad!
Carousel and LIV partnered up with Bites to ensure their trained and sterilized team will deliver the delicious Sohour goodies and they did right on time for the guests’ tummies and taste buds to be satisfied.
Also, a voucher from ‘Vibes’ gym for the guests to enjoy their online classes for 2 whole weeks. A stress ball from ‘FootPark’ which will hopefully eat their stress away and keep them entertained, whom also promised the guests an amusing party when things get back to normal at their enjoyable premises.
And in an effort to give back to the community ‘LIV’ dedicated part of their marketing budget usually spent on their Annual Sohour to the Egyptian Food Bank whom they’ve also partnered up with to raise awareness about their initiative ‘Supporting Day labor, is a Social Responsibility’ to help and support families that were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Egyptian Food Bank respectable and Head of Marketing Communication ‘Yara El Narsh’ joined the Zoom event and was very keen to explain the campaign’s cause and details to the guests and answer any questions.
Carousel’s CEO Daliah Galal and LIV CEO Khalil Abdallah thanked the guests and partners added that though it was challenging to put together this first of its kind event, it was totally worth it to be able to get friends and partners together and celebrate through these difficult times, while ensuring to follow health and safety measures and inspire more companies and individuals alike to continue practice social distancing as well as help raising awareness about the role the Egyptian Food Bank by sharing their donation channels in an effort to give back to the community.
Memory of the City: New Initiative to Document Egypt’s Architectural Heritage
‘Memory of the City’ is the newest initiative launched by the Egypt’s Ministry of Culture with the aim of documenting the architectural identity of ancient areas in Egypt.
Minister Inas Abdel Dayem said that Egypt’s architectural heritage represent the history of civilizations and the formation of urban life and its development.
Abdel Dayem further explained that Egypt’s rich architectural treasures are a product of various historic influences that all came together to form the country’s unique heritage.
Abdel Dayem further pointed out that the “Memory of the City” Initiative is a humanitarian and historical message with the aim of preserving the nation’s unique features.
Also worth mentioning is that the “Memory of the City” initiative includes launching a series of books that highlights areas with a great historical value, in addition to setting boundaries and foundations to preserve this rich history.
The series tells multiple stories of buildings, their residents, the community and environment. All of this comes as part of the Ministry’s efforts in preserving the identity of these Egyptian areas and shed the light on their significant part of the Egyptian cultural heritage.
New Swine Flu With Pandemic Potential Found in China
A new type of swine flu has been discovered by Chinese researchers with the possibility of infecting humans and causing yet another pandemic! The study was released on Monday.
Scientists warn about the virus but for the time-being, they say that it doesn’t impose an immediate global threat.
The disease, knows as the G4 virus, is genetically descended from the H1N1 swine flu that caused a pandemic in 2009. G4 nowshows “all the essential hallmarks of a candidate pandemic virus,” said the study, published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
We know how scary this sounds but Dr. Angela Rasmussen, a virologist at Columbia University’s public health school, asked the public not to “freak out.”
No evidence has shown yet that G4 could be transmitted from one person to another, perhaps the most promising sign so far, said Carl Bergstrom, a professor of biology at the University of Washington.
“This is not a *new* new virus; it’s been very common in pigs since 2016,” he tweeted. “There’s no evidence that G4 is circulating in humans, despite five years of extensive exposure. That’s the key context to keep in mind.”

In a statement, Abdel Dayem said that the resumption of cultural activities indicates Egypt’s ability to face challenges and cope with the virus.
