Monthly Food Assistance for Copts in Need

We Provide Monthly Food Assistance for Coptic Families in Need

As we conduct case studies for the needy Coptic families in Egypt, especially in Upper Egypt, in almost every visit we make, we are reminded of the fact that poor and inadequate nutrition leaves children vulnerable to diseases and can cause stunted growth. With your support and working hand in hand with the Coptic Church in Egypt, we purchase and distribute food that is high in nutritional value. Our church volunteers deliver the food in quality boxes on a monthly basis to the poor Coptic families enrolled in our food program. Each family member receives a monthly quantity of food that is sufficient for one month. Food includes: Bread, Meat, Chicken, Seafood, Pasta, Rice, Grains, Cooking Oil, Sauces, Cereals, Canned Goods, Dairy, Cheese, and Eggs.

$100 a month feeds a family of 4 people for the entire month.
$150 a month feeds a family of 6 people for the entire month.

While visiting the poor Coptic communities in Egypt, we have seen it firsthand that almost in every home there are children with half-empty stomachs. It breaks our hearts to see numerous children who are obviously in poor health conditions because their families can’t afford to put nutritious and enough food on the table.

Poverty is the number one cause of malnutrition in developing countries. In children, it causes poor brain development, weak learning ability, low immunity, increased infections, Anemia, anxiety, changes in mood, and other psychiatric symptoms. In adults, it causes higher risk of developing chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

Thank God, with your support, we have enrolled 327 Coptic families, living in Upper Egypt, in our Monthly Food Assistance Program. They now receive nutritious food that is delivered to their homes every month by our church volunteers in quality food boxes. This program is unique because poor families receive their food supply on a monthly basis, and not only on special occasions.
