If successful, you get a cash sum settlement

Egypt is a country that perfectly combines the old with the new. If you want to get your fix of history and tradition, you’ll find it everywhere as Pharaonic temples and Pyramids rise up out of the desert, ready to be explored. You can sail down the Nile or trek though the desert, but if you like your holidays a bit more relaxed, you can visit one of the many all-inclusive resorts that are so popular with holiday-makers and head to the nearby beaches that look out onto the Red Sea.

Egypt is known for its unsanitary water conditions and unfortunately swimming pools are not exempt. Because of the increase in all-inclusive holidays, large amounts of holiday makers will use the outdoor swimming pools which are found in most hotels. If the swimming pools are not properly maintained, with staff checking for dirt and faecal matter then Cryptosporidiosis will start to spread and collect in water filters. The virus can cause diarrhoea and severe cramps.
