Saint Mary’s Missions and Outreach Ministry supports Coptic Orphans.
Orphans – Many orphanages in Egypt are filled with children who have families, but their widowed mothers cannot afford to feed them. Coptic Orphans focuses on the children most likely to face the deadly combination of poverty and social injustice, but who have the greatest potential to change their lives and the lives of others. Coptic Orphans makes a covenant, called “Not Alone”, with orphaned families in Egypt to stay with a child until the end of their highest education, as long as they also work hard to make full use of every possible educational opportunity they have.
Transforming generations with Egypt’s fatherless Coptic Orphans is an award-winning international Christian development organization that has touched the lives of over 55,000 children in Egypt since 1988. “Coptic” means Egyptian Christian, and is the fruit of the indigenous Christian community of Egypt with its ancient way of life that goes all the way back to the first century. Coptic Orphans works in close partnership with local bishops, who also guide in areas of local need and nominates new volunteers.
Coptic Orphans is a registered nonprofit in the United States, Canada, Australia, Egypt, and the United Kingdom.
