Urgent Needs

Carolin’s family needs to construct an iron window (58920)

posted on October 22, 2014

Carolin’s  father died at the age of 40, leaving behind his wife and 3 daughters. The eldest girl dropped out of school to work and provide an income for the rest of the family.  Together with other donations their monthly income is about LE 69 ($20). Carolin suffers from epilepsy and requires continuous treatment. This causes a drain on their meager income. With your help, Coptic Orphans will provide for all their needs so that Carolin gets her medical treatment and she and her sister will be able to finish their education. The family's flat is on the ground floor and street boys can enter it easily so Carolin’s mother built a wall to close the windows, thus preventing air and sun from coming in. Carolin’s family needs to construct an iron window which will cost $40. The family needs a generous donor to cover this cost. Donate to Carolin.

The family relies on a poor pension of $11 in addition to a small income from a small piece of agricultural land and some help from the church. The family consists of 3 children & the mother. Their problem is that they are living with another family with nothing to separate the 2 houses which causes them troubles as the other family always throws trash at them and they cross their limits in dealing with them.

Noura* Needs a Home (62835)

posted on September 18, 2013

Noura was a preschooler when her father died in a hit-and-run accident. He was hit by a car while riding his bicycle to run an errand. Working as a guard of a villa in one of Cairo's upscale suburbs barely provided for his wife and three children. He soon figured that running errands got him tips that relieved some his financial burdens. Tragically, running errands also claimed  his life.

Noura's father died in his mid-thirties leaving behind an illiterate widow and three little children. Striving to keep her children in school, Noura's mother moved to live with her family in a rural mudbrick house. The widowed mother and her three children occupy one room and share the house with two uncles, their wives and children.

The house is too small to accommodate Noura’s family, the two uncles, their wives and children. Noura and her siblings don't have enough space to study. They also feel not welcomed out of their tiny room. But Noura's mother owns a piece of land that can be used to build a house with two rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom.

Coptic Orphans has partnered with the church to start the project. However, Noura needs a generous contributor to help with the remaining amount, the equivalent of $1,519 USD.

Mounir's father worked as a day laborer at Anba Samuel monastery until he died of meningitis. He left behind a little boy, Mounir, and a widow who has health issues that limit her physical activities. Mounir's mother struggled to provide for her son.

When Nabila's father died, Nabila along with her two sisters and mother, had to move out of the rural mudbrick house they lived in. Nabila's father had children from a previous marriage and remarried when his first wife passed away. The step-children were discourteous towards Nabila's mother and at times aggressive with her children.

Nabila and her family moved to the close by village where the maternal grandmother lives. She offered to take them in. While they now have a more peaceful place to dwell in, they found the house in need of costly repairs they can't afford. After all, Nabila's illiterate mother sells groceries so she can bring in extra money to keep her children in school. As for the widow's pension she gets monthly, it helps put food on the table.

With deteriorating security conditions throughout Egypt, especially in Beni Suef, Nabila needs to get a sturdy front door installed. The room they use in the grandmother's house, and the bathroom, need tile flooring. They also want to have a door put in for the bathroom.

These repairs will cost Nabila's family $1,040. Nabila is in need of a generous contributor to cover the cost of such renovations.

When Greis's father died, his mother faced the hard reality of assuming complete responsibility for the financial needs and well-being of Greis who was in the third grade. A farmer living hand-to-mouth, Greis's father left nothing for his family to lean on. The mother started working in nearby farms as a seasonal day laborer to help support her son.

Greis and his mother live in a rural house with the wall between them and their neighbor torn down. This deprives the widowed mother from any privacy and distracts Greis during study time as the noise permeates to his room.

Greis's mother convinced her neighbor to rebuild the wall, but he demanded that she shares the expenses.  With the meager widow's pension of about $13 a month, it's not possible to pay her share.

Greis needs a generous contributor to donate $165 to erect the wall.

Help Merzek* Rebuild Demolished House (61612)

posted on July 31, 2013

Merzek suffered the loss of his father at the young age of 12. Merzek's father was a farmer who worked tirelessly, but hardly made enough money to provide for his two children and wife. When Merzek's father died of heart disease, both Merzek and his sister were illiterate.

With the father's death, Merzek and his sister benefited from the services of Coptic Orphans which included literacy classes. After a few month Merzek was able to read and write and started going to school regularly. Merzek's mother decided to help her children continue their education, but she was not able to come up with money to rebuild their demolished house. The meager widow's pension she receives can never cover the cost of rebuilding the house.

When Merzek's father was still alive, the mother never worried about safety even with no walls, doors or windows. After all, the entire family stayed in one room. Now dangers lurk around them. Merzek's mother is worried about her safety as well as the safety of her young children.     

Merzek and his family need a generous contributor to cover the cost of rebuilding their house - the equivalent of $1,328.

Help Olivia* Replace Moldy Walls (59003)

posted on July 29, 2013

Olivia's father worked as a medical representative for a big pharmaceutical company. His job entailed frequent travels to market and deliver drug samples to physicians. His job helped him make enough money to provide a decent life for his family. But when he died in a tragic car accident, his car was totaled and the medical samples he had were burgled.

Olivia's father was survived by his pregnant wife and three daughters. The mother's in-laws sold the salvaged car to a junk dealer and instead of helping Olivia's family with their financial struggles, they kept the money to themselves. The family managed to get by for a few months when Olivia's mother started selling some drug samples her late husband kept in the house to some local pharmacies. But the income brought in along with the monthly pension of EGP 50 were far from adequate to cover their needs.

Matters got worse for Olivia and her family when the house they live in was flooded. In no time, walls of the water-damaged house was affected by mold. The musty odor of mold affects the health of the children causing them to have asthma and skin rash.   

Olivia needs a generous contributor  to donate $380 to cover the cost of tearing down all mold- ravaged  walls and replacing them with new walls.

Saad lives in a very small one-room house  with his sister and mother after his father passed away. Saad's father was a farmer who could barely provide for his family when he was alive. But when he died, Saad's life became harder when his father died.

Magdy* Needs Running Water and Electricity (47999)

posted on July 16, 2013

Magdy's father toiled day and night as a farmer to provide for his four children. But when he died of a heart attack, the family was hit hard. Magdy's mother, an illiterate widow, was in no way prepared for the loss of the breadwinner. The widow's pension she receives from the government barely covers their consumption of bread.

To make matters worse, Magdy's older brother dropped out of school as a result of hanging out with the wrong crowd. Though he got a job as a casual laborer, he refuses to help his siblings and widowed mother. Pressed by financial burdens, Magdy's mother sold some furniture to keep up with her responsibilities.

Magdy doesn't have running water or electricity at home. The only access to water is available at a public water pump a few miles away from his home.  This makes it difficult for Magdy's mother to maintain an adequate level of cleanliness causing the children to be sick often. In addition, Magdy and his siblings have to finish their school work before it gets dark otherwise they go to the street to study under any lamp post.

Though the church supports Magdy's family, they can't afford to pay for having water pipes installed or get electricity as all money is spent on school expenses.

Magdy needs a generous contributor to donate the equivalent of $123 to get running water and electricity.

He dreamt of all the things he will be able to get for his children and wife with the extra money he would make, and was hopeful that their living conditions would get better. For 5 years, he was able to help his children get nutritious meals, decent clothes and school supplies. But then his liver failed, and he came back to his family empty-handed. Basma’s family sold all their furniture and spent all they had on treatments and medications. They even had to borrow from Basma’s uncle. He eventually died and left his widowed wife and six children a pile of debt.

Basma’s family has been working their way out of debt, but they have a more immediate need. They own a rural house on some farmland, but it has no bathroom. Basma needs a generous donor to contribute $336 USD to cover the cost of installing a bathroom.

Amal and her mother struggled to make ends meet when Amal's father passed away.

Madeha* Needs a New Home (58918) 

Madeha’s father was a day laborer who succumbed to a heart attack at 45. Neither Madeha nor her seven siblings imagined the hardships that would hit with their father’s death. Madeha’s illiterate mother struggled to provide for her eight children, all attending school, relying on a widow’s pension that barely covered the cost of bread for a month. The children had to drink tea to fill their stomachs, causing some of them to become anemic.

Madeha and her family live in a one-room mudbrick house with a ceiling covered with reeds. One day, a fire broke out and engulfed the house in flames. The children and mother weren’t able to contain the fire, but got out safely.  The blaze gutted the house to a total loss. Madeha and her siblings need a new house which will cost EGP 30,000.

Coptic Orphans and the church raised funds for Madeha, but need a generous donor to cover the remaining amount, the equivalent of $1,375 USD.

March 12, 2013: Generous donors from Canada and North Carolina have covered this need. May God richly reward you; the amount over and above Madeha's need will cover other similar needs.

Youssef's* Family Needs a Toilet (59291)

Youssef’s father died after running out of money for his bronchial asthma medication. His widowed mother was left with six children and a widow’s pension of 79 Egyptian pounds. Her spinal injury forced her to put the family's ability to eat in the hands of Youssef's older brother, until Coptic Orphans got him back in school and out of child labor, making sure they all had enough food. 

Now, we want to make sure they have an adequate home. They need a regular toilet to accommodate their mother’s physical restrictions, and are in bad need of plumbing repairs. Youssef needs a generous donor to contribute the equivalent of $90 USD to cover the cost of installing a toilet and fixing the plumbing.

Adel* Needs a Gas Stove (58321)

Help Sherry* Settle in an Apartment (57385)

Sherry’s father sold all furniture and household equipment before he turned his back on Sherry and her mother. It was only a few days after he left that Sherry knew they can no longer stay in their apartment, it was sold as well.

Sherry and her mother managed to get a room in a three-story building. They were thankful for the roof over their head and didn’t mind sharing the bathroom on the ground floor with other tenants. Little did they know that sharing a toilet is as risky as being on the streets without a place to stay. Their neighbor, on the third floor, is a drug dealer. Many come and buy drugs from him especially at night. Sherry’s mother is terrified every time her daughter needs to go to the bathroom. She has to go with Sherry to ensure her safety and that no one harasses or harms her.

Coptic Orphans partnered with Sherry’s local church and found a suitable apartment for them that costs EGP 13,000; however, Sherry needs a generous donor to cover the remaining amount, the equivalent of $605 USD.

Nadia* Needs a Home (50675)

Nadia was only a month old when her father died. He worked as a farmer in Beni Suef and was hoping to provide more for his family when he accepted his new job as a building superintendent in an overcrowded suburb in Cairo. Instead, they lost their provision. Running an errand on his bicycle, a car hit and killed him. The illiterate wife and three children weren't prepared for the loss. They had to move in a room at the grandfather’s mud-brick house as they couldn't afford rent with the little support they get, which is approximately $18 a month from the uncles and church.

The house is too small to accommodate Nadia’s family, the grandparents, two uncles, and their wives and children. But the family owns a piece of land that can be used to build an addition to the house, providing at least two more rooms with a kitchen and a bathroom at a cost of $3,750 USD.

Coptic Orphans has partnered with the church to start the project. However, Nadia needs a generous contributor to help with the remaining amount, the equivalent of $1,492 USD.

Mina* Needs Help to Rebuild His Family's Home (59737)

Mina's father struggled against poverty and constantly failing health to provide for his family. In a heroic act, he mustered all his strength to go to Iraq and work in order to build Mina a home, but his kidneys failed before he got back to Egypt.

Mina's family was left in shambles, just like their half-built house. Without the income to support their schooling, Mina's sisters were left illiterate. Mina's older brother became the sole breadwinner for the family, and took up their father's quest to build their family a house. But Mina's older brother also died in a train accident.   

Coptic Orphans has helped Mina learn how to read and get back on his feet so he can help his sisters and mother. Now, Mina wants to fulfill his father's dream of a home for the whole family. 

He has already used a compensation awarded for the death of his older brother to demolish parts of the house that had rotted, unfinished. He also used the lumber in the house to start rebuilding it.

We want to partner with Mina to make his father's dream a reality, but Mina still needs a generous contributor to cover the outstanding construction cost, the equivalent of $1,250 USD.

To help fight this problem we put high priority in 2011 on safety.  We have been and will continue to be providing doors, locks, and windows to our children's homes who need them the most.

Zakiya has started to flourish in Not Alone. She has a gift for mathematics, and we are giving her extra help in English and Arabic. But she also has a far more need: clean drinking water.

Zakiya's family needs a contributor to cover the cost of drinking water for Zakiya: the equivalent of $222 USD.

November 23: A contributor from Dubai has given $230 towards this need, another from Maryland has contributed $100, and then another generous contributor from New Jersey contributed $222. May God richly reward all of you. The amount donated is over and above what was needed for this need and will go towards similar ones.
