The topic is an investigation of the repercussions of the Russian war on the global economy by focusing on the families affected by these events..
I tried to humanize the economic figures and economic equations in order to simplify and facilitate the readers.
I tracked and monitored these global repercussions on an Egyptian family..
Through reading, readers discovered the extent to which Egyptian families and the Arab world were affected by the repercussions of the Ukrainian war and Covid-19.
Many interacted with the topic and expressed their admiration for the wording and simplification. They confirmed that the article of the topic actually applies to them.. and demanded government action immediately.
Several journalists in local newspapers tried to imitate the issue.
