Tens of thousands of Egyptians in the region of El Minya labour in stone quarries, where work is hazardous and badly paid. Workers' rights are routinely abused. Christian Aid is supporting local Egyptian organisation Wadi el Nil to help quarry workers claim their rights and protect their incomes. They also get child workers out of the quarries and back into school. Watch the slideshow to see the moon-like landscapes of the quarries, and hear about a recent major success for the quarry workers.
