Milad needs a sponsor (10489)

Milad from Qena, who is enrolled in our program remains unsponsored. Though Milad receives the mentoring and love that all our kids receive, it would truly be a blessing if this child could have the additional support of a loving sponsor, since he has gone through harsh experiences including losing his father. Though we cannot reveal identifying information about Milad and his family at this time, when we secure a sponsorship, a staff member will contact and orient you on his case. If you will consider this urgent request to support Milad in Egypt, offering him prayers, encouragement, and love, you can give him hope that will last a lifetime.

Please make Milad part of your family, and help unlock his God-given potential. $60 a month (or more should you wish) can help transform his life and change his world. Milad will continue to receive regular visits by a specially trained Church-based volunteer who serves as his personal mentor and advocate. Through this volunteer, Milad gains access to literacy tutoring and life-skills workshops, and to basic rights like food, clothing, shelter, school supplies, and anything else he needs to succeed in his studies. The support your love provides will serve the cause of improving Milad's education, bringing out his strengths and talents, and equipping him to break the cycle of poverty. Sponsor Milad

He left behind his 26 year old wife and five children.  Maged’s mother receives some financial support from the church though it is irregular. The five children are a son and four daughters. Two of them are in elementary school and the rest are in preschool. Maged’s family live in their grandparents’ double-story rural house with their aunt and her daughter as well. It consists of four rooms and it is supplied with public utilities. There are three beds, a washing machine, gas stove and TV set; though the furniture is old. Maged’s family purchased another house but it has no running water and the roof is covered with palm leaves and is very low. It should be raised higher which will allow the family to move in. Living together with her in-laws also has caused conflict between Maged’s mother and them and she would like for her and her children to live on their own and be more independent. Raising the roof level will allow sufficient space for two rooms and a small hall. Maged’s family needs to do this and connect their house to the water supply. This will cost $1,145.

Boula’s mother is an illiterate housewife but receives 400 EGP as the monthly widow pension in addition to irregular help from the church. She sews clothes on the side to help, but it is not enough. She suffers from colon infection and eyesight weakness. Boula’s eldest sister is married, but he and his other siblings are in school. They live in a one-story rural house built of blocks and roofed with wood. Their house has four rooms and a bathroom, and is supplied with public utilities. The problem Boula’s family is facing is that since their house was built lower than normal level, the subterranean water is continuously filling it and affecting the foundation of the house and the family is unable to use any of the rooms because of the humidity and water. To address this issue, Boula’s family needs to remove the wooden roof and make it out of reinforced concrete, raise the tank, and raise the house level by reconstructing. This will cost $890.

Sylvana needs to repair the cracks in her house (562)

Sylvana’s late father was a graduate of Commercial High School and an employee at school. He died in 2007 at the age of 52 due to a heart attack, leaving behind his wife and four children. Sylvana’s mother is also a graduate of the same school, and receives 550 EGP as the monthly widow pension. Sylvana and her 3 siblings are in school. They live in an owned 3-story rural house built of red bricks and supplied with public utilities. The first floor consists of a foyer, a room, and a bathroom. The other two floors each have two rooms. The family has 3 beds, a wardrobe, a washing machine, refrigerator, gas cooker, and TV set.  However, the walls of the house and the fence have cracks.  The fence was fixed with tiles, which causes insects and unpleasant odors to pass through from the ground floor. The insects and unpleasant odors negatively affect Sylvana and her family by preventing them from staying home as they are afraid of the pests. To solve this issue, they will need new tiles, and to repair the concrete walls that have the cracks. They also need to repair the toilet and build some of the dilapidated walls in the rooms. The cost of this is $975. Sylvana’s family needs a generous donor to cover this cost.

Layla's father passed away in 2004 leaving her family with no income after his death as he was their only supporter. Layla's family receives some help from the church though it is by no means enough to meet her family's needs (her mother and three other siblings). Layla's family is waiting to receive the government pension. Layla lost a front tooth in her lower jaw and needs to fix her five front teeth.

Mariham needs to cover the cost of attending her third year of Interior Design School (3938)

posted on June 5, 2015

Mariham recently completed her second year at South Valley University Faculty of Fine Arts in Luxor, achieving very good grades. She hopes to receive the support of a generous donor to contribute to her high expenses for her third year since her father's pension is limited. She needs to get her own equipment without having to borrow her friends equipment and feel embarrassed when other students refuse to lend her their supplies. During her second year, one of Mariham's professors last year asked the students to buy very expensive materials for the projects they were working on. With her limited resources, Mariham tried to buy what was requested, until she ran out of money to buy enough food for herself. The professor returned her project back to Mariham claiming it wasn't of the quality that was requested. Mariham struggled with this incident but was able to borrow money and material from her friends at school. Her mother also sent her some money and Mariham was able to redo the project and get an excellent score on her second try. This past experience taught her how to face her difficulties and overcome them. Mariham needs the support of a generous donor to help her cover her college and dorm fees, in addition to equipment such as colors and brushes, personal expenses and clothing for the upcoming academic year. This will cost $320.

Magda needs to cover the cost of attending her second year of engineering (14844)

posted on June 5, 2015

Despite losing her father at the young age of first grade, Magda did her best in school to make her father's wish come true. Her last year of high school was tough since her school was far away from her village. She struggled to cover the high tuition fees for her mathematical subjects that she needed additional lessons in. Magda was able to overcome these circumstances and was accepted into the Faculty of Engineering at Menoufeya University. This was a great achievement. She was the only Christian girl in her class and though that was difficult to grasp, Magda joined the architecture department, nonetheless. Joining this department meant that her equipment expenses were very high and beyond what Magda's family could afford. She was able to get through her first year successfully. Magda now needs the help of a generous donor so that she may continue on to her second year of university and so that she has the tools and resources to achieve high grades throughout the upcoming year. Magda needs to cover the cost of her college fees including tuition, books, the needed architecture equipment, project and course expenses, accommodation and transportation and personal fees. This will cost $640.

Adam needs to cover the cost of attending his fourth year of pharmacy school (4329)

posted on June 5, 2015

Adam attends Cairo University Faculty of Pharmacy and recently completed his third year, achieving excellent grades. During his time at Cairo University, Adam joined a first-aid course and benefited a lot from it. He now has the ability to help others in case of an emergency. Despite these achievements, Adam is struggling to continue because the faculty expenses are more than what his family can afford since his siblings are in general high school and his sister is getting ready for marriage. Since some subjects in pharmacy school are very difficult and its difficult to pass unless you take a certain course, Adam was worried about this since the fees for the course were higher than what his family could afford. Nonetheless, Adam was determined to work hard without taking the course, and challenged himself. He was able to finally pass the subject with very good scores and gained his professor's trust in doing so. Adam hopes to receive the support of a generous donor to allow him to continue his education and become a university professor in the future. He wants to be able to support his family in a better way and make them all proud. Adam needs $320 to continue his education.

posted on May 20, 2015

This child's living conditions are really terrible. After the death of her father, she is now living in the house owned by her paternal grandmother. The grandfather suffers from a mental illness making it impossible for Mariana’s mother to live there. As a result, Mariana and her mother live in only one room of the house which is poorly lighted.  The room has no separate bathroom, so they have to go to the maternal grandfather’s house on daily basis to be able to use the bathroom. Additionally, there were problems with Mariana’s uncle’s wife so Mariana and her mother left the house and spent the whole day out with the farm animals and then returns at night to sleep in the house. Mariana’s family has no source of income except for LE 50 as rent for the small piece of land Mariana’s father used to own. The grandfather gave the mother a piece of land 55 meter and she built it with the support of the church. She built 3 rooms already but still needs to build the ceiling and renovate the bathroom so its suitable for use. This will cost $1410. Mariana’s family needs a generous donor to cover this cost.

posted on May 20, 2015

Mina’s father is a 36 year old shoemaker. He stopped paying rent on the flat they lived in and kept getting evicted and moving to different flats more than 5 times. He also went to jail for writing checks without credit. The church helped him get out by paying bail. He is addicted to drugs. He was abusive to his wife and children. When Mina’s mother tried working so she could make income for herself, her husband threatened her with a knife. He kicked his wife and children out of the house in August 2006. The church temporarily found a flat for Mina’s mother and the children to live in which they rented for 90 L.E. per month. The family income is 150 L.E. from the wife's work in a nursery. The family now lives in a flat on the ground floor of the grandfather's house. The flat isn't suitable for living because it’s located in an unsafe and dirty area with a collapsed roof. The smell is also pretty bad because of the animals that inhabit the place. Mina’s sister is often harassed by her neighbors. Mina’s family needs to find a new healthy flat beside good neighbors. The cost of the new flat is $900. Mina’s family needs a generous donor to cover this cost.

Bishoy’s mother is a graduate of commercial high school. She worked as a teacher in National Illiteracy Classes and when this project ended she made a living by selling clothes. She receives 90EGP as her monthly widow pension. Bishoy is in middle school and has a younger sister in elementary school. Bishoy’s family lives in a rural house built of mud bricks and roofed with wood. It consists of three rooms and it is supplied with public utilities. The family demolished the house then rebuilt it. They didn't complete the electricity and the water connections. The electricity connections were installed outside the walls and that is dangerous and the illumination is weak. The water connection is installed behind the main door of the house. The electricity wires are found in a wrong place which threatens their safety. Because of the weak illumination, the family members move from room to room in order to study according to the intensity of light. The water supply doesn’t adequately reach the bathroom, which causes a bad odor, and they cannot bathe, which affects their health and hygiene. The children are embarrassed to have friends visit because of this. To remedy the situation, the family needs to install electric connections inside the walls correctly, supply saving lamps for good lighting, complete the water connections from the main door to the bathroom and finish the plumbing works. This will cost $1,040. The family needs a

Martina's family needs to finish constructing their new house (648)

posted on March 4, 2015

When Martina’s father passed away, their financial situation deteriorated. The family had a piece of land that her father had purchased during his lifetime, which was shared with his brother. Martina’s family now lives in a big family house with her paternal uncles and the grandmothers; however, they live in a small room on the roof. They use this room for all of their needs, including showering, sleeping, storing their kitchen equipment. The room is tight with only one bed; the rest of the family members sleep on the ground. The children do not have a separate place to study which makes it very challenging to concentrate since they study on the bed. The family has no extra room to host guests; there is not even space to place a chair for someone to sit in, which makes them especially embarrassed when they receive visitors. The only solution to remedy the family’s living condition is to build a separate house on the piece of land Martina’s father owned. St. Mary and St. Augustine’s Association for Construction has helped us lay the foundation for the house and pillars. We would like to continue working on the house to be able to provide the children and family with a suitable place to live so they achieve stability in their studies and lives. The cost of completing construction of the house is $1,615. The family needs a generous donor to cover this cost.
