  1. Could you please help me?
    I am enquiring on behalf of a friend who is egyprian (he speaks english) for a working position. He is currently working in saudi arabia but his work visa is coming to an end and has not been able to find more employment there. Due to the problems in Egypt at the moment he will be unable to gain employment in egypt when he returns shortly so is asking friends to help him obtain employment somewhere else.
