A good man or cynic?
Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris decided to buy an island in the Mediterranean sea and to organize a shelter for refugees fleeing military conflicts and instability, reports Rus.Media.
We will remind that the company of the billionaire Orascom TMT engaged in communications in Asia and the Middle East. It is the largest employer of Egypt.
Last week Naguib Sawiris tweeted:
“Greece or Italy, sell me the island, and I will make him independent, suitable for living migrants and provide jobs so they created their own new state…”.
In the next post, he added:
“The idea is crazy. Maybe so, but at least temporarily, while they will be able to return home??!!”
When Naguib Sawiris asked if it would work, he replied: «Certainly. There are dozens of deserted Islands which can accommodate hundreds of thousands of refugees».
Mr Sawiris, whose fortune is estimated at $2.9 billion, says that you need to do at least something to help the tens of thousands of people trying to reach Europe in search of a better life.
“Now they are treated like cattle»– said Mr. Sawiris.
This year has killed more than 2,000 people. They all tried to cross the Mediterranean sea. A huge outcry was raised and a picture of the three-year Syrian aylana Kurdi, who died on the beach in Turkey.
As you look at the proposal of the Egyptian billionaire? Is it possible to implement this idea?
