Although the Christians are satisfied with the political course of President Sisi, they are still oppressed and persecuted in their villages by followers of the Muslimbrotherhood. The Muslims want to get rid of the Christian families in their midst and slander and bully them until they leave the village. Every day Christian girls are being kidnapped and abused on their way to school, or undergo a female genital mutilation forced upon them by Muslim women. In the Wadi we are now building houses for these families.
We decided to help the poorest and most vulnerable with food, water and medical help. But then also giving aid, helping them to help themselves by cultivating vegetables and cereals in the long term. It occurred to us that people had no idea what to do with the fertile ground.
In response to a question from a faithful reader, we take the opportunity to explain the dire circumstances that the Coptic Christians faces in Egypt, and the difficulties encountered by the Hatune Foundation on delivering its aid work. But regardless of the many obstacles, our foundation manages to bring aid to those that really need it.
Report from Sister Hatune about her latest trip to Egypt. She visited the area surrounding the Mokattam mountain, home to many Coptic Christians, also known as garbage people. Garbage has become their livelihood. But amid all the garbage, there are schools, churches, hospitals. Sister Hatune and her Foundation are also present here, providing help to people, making their life a bit more humane.
