On the occasion of the internships of the Master’s in Animal Law and Society, I took part in the "animal week" organized by the NGO Animals' Angels for the month of July in the camel market of Birqash on the outskirts of Cairo. Together with the NGO’s team, we accompanied the thousands of camels that come to this market every day and the children who work there.
