About Coptic Cross Ministries
The organization’s ministry model is to join the existing efforts with the Coptic Church in serving the poor Coptic communities in Egypt, especially in Upper Egypt, notably an indigent area. The organization’s volunteers visit each and every person it assists to determine their needs thus resulting in on-going relief. Breaking the poverty cycle is the ultimate goal for each individual and family alike. Those in need receive monthly quality food assistance delivered to their homes. Children receive Bibles and school supplies to help them improve both spiritually and intellectually. Those with disabilities or illnesses receive medical care, equipment, regular hygiene assistance, and housekeeping services. Qualified Copts are able to start, grow, and/or maintain their own small businesses. Those who need it the most, receive home repairs – in many cases home rebuilding – furniture, appliances, debt relief, and wedding assistance for ladies.
