Urgent Needs

Thank you for visiting this page and contributing to our family's urgent needs. By God's grace, and your support, we are able to alleviate a variety of medical and housing needs in Egypt. Through your contributions, you stand alongside our families during their most vulnerable moments. Your generosity means that our staff and our church-based volunteers are able to shepherd these life changing projects from start to completion, ensuring the highest levels of transparency and accountability.

Please know that at times we get multiple donors funding the same cases. Our website is not equipped with automatic updates at this moment, so we do our best to manually update the webpage as quickly as possible. However, in the event this page isn't updated in time for you to see if a case listed below has been funded by another donor, we will allocate your donation to dedicated programming which supports children and families with the most urgent needs as determined by Coptic Orphans.

Magda’s family needs to renovate the second floor of their house (6923)

Magda’s father worked as a farmer, but suffered from liver disease and lost his battle it, dying as a result of liver failure. He left behind his wife and 3 children. Magda lives in a house which has a hall they use as a kitchen and two rooms. They also have an area where they raise cattle. The walls of the house are not on the same level. The floors are not concreted and the bathroom is demolished. The church helped them to build the front part of the house so they now have two rooms that are painted and tiled. Their bathroom has a squat toilet. Magda’s family uses one of the rooms to sleep in and the other to study in and to welcome their guests. Magda and her siblings are getting older and since their living area on the ground floor is narrow and they all sleep in one room on one bed, they need to use the second floor. In order to do so, they need to build a staircase, build the walls and roof them with reinforced concrete. They also need to complete the electricity connections and install 4 doors and windows. These house renovations will cost $2,215. Magda’s family needs a generous donor to cover this cost.
