ummidris posted Ladies lunch club Algiers on the Algeria forum on December 19, 2014:
I just wanted to take a moment to introduce you to a small, grassroots charity called Algerian Action which is based in Algiers but has supporters around the world. We have been established for almost eight years and have been able to assist thousands of children and families that are in need. We offer help through the provision of food, clothing, medicine, school supplies, mobility aids and have helped people build homes. The organisation is completely run by volunteers and we have a 100% donation policy. Next year we are planning to start up a ladies lunch club for expat, English speaking women that are living in Algiers who would like to contribute to their new community by helping those in need through crafting, holding fundraisers and offering support. The lunch club would also be a way for expats to meet other women and socialise over a shared, informal meal. If you would be interested in the lunch club or would like to help in some other way we would love to hear from you. To find out more about what we do visit our website at Thank you for your interest!

I have a very special male friend in Algeria , who lives with his family , parents , brothers, sister. niece & nephew. I have written letters, sent gifts. So far the gifts are not of any importance to anyone, but my male friend. Why, does he not get my things. Are they all thiefs over there? Trying to get him here is another problem. That Paris Office, just is not too fair. I do know, that Canada cannot support the world, but i am not asking them too. How do u investigate these ppl. There is bad in every country, not just Algeria. I cannot afford immigration lawyers. Why do the government make things so complicated? Can anyone out there help me please,? Thank You, Misu

First off if your male friend is someone you want to marry I highly recommend Then about the mail. I live in the USA and my male friend lives in Algeria. It always took 2 months for him to receive a package. It was always opened and in the years that we have been friends there was only one thing missing and that was a book. It is what it is. I am betting other countries have the same problem. You can send a package next day air to Mexico, and when it arrives there it takes 6 weeks to be delivered. Good luck

I receive packages routinely from my family but it is expensive by air mail. It normally takes 2 to 3 weeks. They also send it to a business address and not our home. This seems to be much more reliable.

Hi, My hubby is currently assigned a new project in Algeris for 2 years and we are Indian couple moving from Ireland to Algeria with a 1.5 years old son. Can you please list us the places where most of the expats live in Algeris and also safe options to rent a serviced apartment.? We are really concerned about the move as we both don't know the local languages of Algeria. Please share any details relating our move that would benefit our safe stay in Algeris.. Thank you..
chany replied most recently with:
Hi My father is Algerian, In my opinion if you are in the capital then I think Alger Centre is not bad or Bab El Oued this is the middle class, high class is Hydra or Sidi Yahja. Algeria has 2 languages: Arabic and French. English is not very common. Greetings Chanez Personal Shopper and Gift Buying
Iloosha replied most recently with:

I want to turn back to my back home in Algeria, but I have three kids 7,8,9 years old. They speak only English.I am looking for private school that has specialized teacher to integrate my kids.I appreciate
nauzica replied most recently with:
Hi mustafalotfi , I moved from the US a couple of years ago with 2 kids, age 3 and 5 both spoke only English a little bit of french. I put the oldest in a private Algerian school and by the end of the year he could, write, read and speak french and Arabic, I was amazed! But it wasn't all good since the school system in Algeria is so different from the American, had to go through an adaption phase which wasn't easy... Good luck!

Nabilo replied to the thread Transferring money out of the country (Inheritance) on the Algeria forum:
adam686 initially posted:
Hello! I'm wondering if anyone has any experience or advice with regards to getting sizable amounts of money out of Algeria and into the US. (let's say the equivalent of $500,000+ USD; or > 50,000,000 Algerian Dinars worth). We inherited this money and would like to be able to access it (we are currently living in the US). I'm very clueless about how the banking system in Algeria works, but from what I gather the infrastructure is very "primitive". So how can one go about converting this money into USD and getting it to a US bank account safely and legally? I noticed that Citibank and HSBC do appear to operate in the country - does anyone have any experience trying to get this done through them? I'm used to the US banking system where you can just show up with cash and make things happen - but it seems like Algerian Dinars are not well-recognized currency outside of the country. So basically: Have a lot of Algerian Dinars in Algeria. Interested in getting them converted to USD and transferring them out of the country (to the US). Any thoughts/suggestions/insights? I'd greatly appreciate any experience which could be shared on the subject! Thank you very, very much for your time! -Adam

It's illegal to transfer money out of Algerian soil, the only people who can do that are export/import agencies, and the government of course. It's sad really, but you can always contact the U.S embassy in Algiers they may be of some help!
