The pope resumed his speech saying the second human pyramid is the engineer Mr. Ibrahim Samak, who’s being honored tonight by the Center, for his science, inventions and activities, clarifying that he is a son of the Southern Valley [Ganoub Al-Wadi], who’s become a star in Europe, due to his inventions that served Germany and humanity as a whole, as a solar power scientist, a commodity that would be a source of riches if applied at a widespread level in Egypt. 

Then Pope Tawadros referred to the third human pyramid, the engineer Hany Azer,  tunnel expert in Germany, whose name also became renowned in Europe, pointing out his achievements, like establishing a vast underground station in Berlin.

Then Pope Tawadros and Bishop Ermia [Jeremiah] presented the two scientists Ibrahim Samak and Hany Azer the Pope Shenouda Award for “Wisdom & Compassion”.
