“While visiting Anba Abraam Coptic Charity’s projects I was most touched by a home for physically and mentally challenged children. There was a wide range of issues and ages. This project was just in its infancy and yet there were a large number of children.”
“On my trip to Egypt I was given a tour of a workshop which supported impoverished women to learn a trade. They are taught how to sew and use specialized equipment for embroidery. While they are training they are paid and then hired.”
“My husband and I had the opportunity to visit a home for the community’s seniors which is supported financially by Anba Abraam Coptic Charity. We saw first hand the state of art equipment that was bought through the support and funds of donors.”
