9. Egypt – $1.806 billion

Egypt’s gross domestic product of $272 billion in 2013 classifies it as a lower middle-income, developing country. It has a population of 82.06 million people, and 25.2 percent live below the poverty line. Throughout the uprising in Egypt, much had been discussed about revising the aid that is sent to the country, but most donor countries agreed to continue aid so as not to damage civil society or create a vacuum in the government that could be filled by more dangerous actors.
