The Tale behind Egyptian Brick

On the outskirts of the Egyptian Capital, resides hundreds of clay brick factories. The clay bricks manufacturing industry represents an old and important economic industry in Egypt. Brick factories have developed their production lines so that they can use the desert clay instead of Nile mud. But for all this work, there is a little reward as the conditions in which the laborers' work is extremely tiring without any kind of safety equipment, which could put them at a higher risk of injury.
