UPDATE 12:24 PM: US Aid here refers to Official Development Assistance, not military aid. See US military vs economic assistance and US aid by sector in Egypt here.
This chart comes to us from the people at AidData, a data portal that provides detailed information down to the individual project level for aid funds spent by traditional and non-traditional donors.
The categories used are from research by Simone Dietrich, who explained: “Public sector captures US aid flows to Egypt that directly involve the Egyptian government in the implementation, ranging between budget support and technical assistance. Bypass aid, on the other hand, captures aid that flows ‘around’ the Egyptian government and is implemented by multilateral organizations, NGOs, or private contractors. ”
So, has US aid been better at supporting the Egyptian government, or the Egyptian people?
