The Forgotten Nubians of Egypt
When Egypt built the Aswan high dam in the 1960s, it brought a new source of power for the country and wrestled control over annual floods. It came at the cost of relocating tens of thousands of Nubians who were destined to see their homeland sink below the newly created Lake Nasser once the dam was finalized. They were promised land that never materialized, and so they waited for decades. There was hope after the revolution, that the Morsi government would give them a homeland, but now that has been forgotten again, and the Nubians continue to live in temporary housing and ghost towns, waiting for their land.
