 The Los Angeles Times printed an article reporting on a comprehensive  draft  planned by the Ministry of Housing regarding Cairo 's  neighborhoods slums, and 226 other cities expected to be effective by 2012. While the article commended the intentions it was skeptical stressing it may not benefit the poor who the project is intended but is a controversial restructuring of the city which will be the marginalization of the poor from the rich.

Author Jeffrey Fleishman, ascertained that although this project includes the construction by the government of 40 schools in the district of Giza, and12  hospitals and clinics to serve 900 thousand people, it is likely to  fail under the current system. He continued, "It is impossible to get rid of all slums, the way the government plans maintaining that the best solution would be in preventing the spread of slums, followed by, the development of existing slums from within rather than completely destroying them.
