Apart from helping us drink our worries away, there are few bars and clubs in Cairo that can claim to be socially conscious. Cairo Jazz Club does its good deeds with its annual Christmas fundraisers, but nothing else really comes to mind.
Zamalek Nile-side hangout, Gŭ Bar, is set to their good deed through a fundraiser for the Egyptian Autistic Society on Monday 20th of April. Though details about the night are yet to be revealed, invites are 400LE, which includes soft drinks and food, with the bar charging 150LE for corkage.
The event marks Autism Awareness Month, which is set to see various institutions in Cairo involved, including Cairo Runners and Harley Davidson.
Founded in 1999, the Egyptian Autistic Society has provided excellent support to autism sufferers in Egypt and was the first organisation of its kind. Offering a range of services, including individual educational plans for autistic children, EAS has done an incredible amount of work in raising awareness of autism in Egypt for the last sixteen years.
