“For decades,” writes CNEWA’s Michel Constantin, regional director for Lebanon, Syria and Egypt, “CNEWA has accompanied the local churches in Egypt — especially the Catholic — to help bridge the gap with the dominant Coptic Orthodox and Muslim communities through the support of distinguished social services.”
&ldquo:These works of the church reach out to all those in need,” he adds, “without any distinction.”
Our activities in Egypt focus on those marginalized from society, including support for people with special needs, refugees and displaced persons, illiterate families and those who, uprooted from their villages, collect garbage — squatting in illegal and dangerous housing in the nation’s teeming cities.
“Moreover,” Mr. Constantin writes, “we help the churches improve the formation of their priests and religious so those who serve in difficult and even dangerous areas are equipped to take on the challenges with love and prayer. Our church leaders,” he concludes, “are catalysts in making peace.”
