Your Video Invitation to the Coptic Orphans 25th Anniversary Gala in Canada Is Here!

Dear Friends,

I’m excited to share this YouTube video invitation to the Coptic Orphans 25th Anniversary Gala in Canada on Sept. 28! It’s an incredible honor that His Holiness will be there in person to accept the Leading by Example Award, and that Ambassador Meleika will be an honored guest speaker. I’ll be sharing a similar video, soon, with the details about the Gala in the greater Washington, DC area.

Looking forward to seeing you in person on Sept. 28!

One Body in Christ,

Nermien Riad

About Nermien Riad

Nermien Riad founded Coptic Orphans in 1988 after volunteering for an orphanage in Cairo. When she saw that most of the children had living widowed mothers who simply couldn't afford to feed them, she gathered family and friends to sponsor children in Egypt. Today Coptic Orphans works through a network of 400+ church-based volunteers in Egypt, who visit fatherless families in their homes and make sure they get everything they need to unlock their full potential. That way, they don't have to get married off as child brides, work as 10-year old family breadwinners, or go to live at an institutional orphanage.
