    With more than a week left of Ramadan, Cairo is still
    overflowing with opportunities to not only enjoy late evening gatherings filled
    with cultural festivities; but also to make a difference while you’re at it.
    Bab El Nil at the Fairmont Nile City has
    organised a series of charitable events this Ramadan to raise funds for
    Operation Smile Egypt,
    starting with an art exhibition and ending this Wednesday night with Cairo 360’s musical
    night.

    What is Operation Smile Egypt? Every
    three minutes, a child is born with a cleft palate and high surgery costs mean that facial deformities often go
    untreated. Launched in 2004, Operation
    Smile Egypt
    is part of a global alliance that has worked extensively over the years to finance
    numerous operations on underprivileged Egyptian children with facial clefts. By
    providing free, safe and effective treatments, this group of medical
    professionals allows child after child to be free of this debilitating health
    concern.

    This Wednesday night, Cairo
    360 will team up with the Fairmont
    Nile City
    and Operation Smile to host an awesome evening filled with some of the best
    modern Arabic music around. Included in the night’s line-up are Eftekasat, Masar
    Egbari and the Percussion Show. Playing since 2001, oriental jazz favourites Eftekasat
    recently released a new album, Dandasha
    and will perform their classic hits as well as recent tracks.Pairing up with Masar Egbari’s rock n’roll
    sound and the rhythmic percussion performance by the Percussion Show, this musical
    night is not one to be missed!

    20LE-raffle tickets will be sold at the
    show for a chance to win a luxurious Eid weekend at the stellar Fairmont Nile City.
    All proceeds from the evening will go to Operation Smile Egypt.

    In the true spirit and observance of this
    holy month of Ramadan, this is a great opportunity to enjoy a musical night out
    with friends while helping to make a profound difference in the lives of
    others. Taking place in the Bab El Nil tent, the show will start at 9PM.

    Space is limited; so RSVP as soon as
    possible. To book directly, call the Fairmont
    at 24619494 and ask for a reservation at Bab El Nil for sohour on Wednesday,
