CATEGORY: Area in Need, Marriage Needs, Needy in Egypt


There are 40 young couples in very poor areas in Akhmim & Sheeben Al Natar, Egypt that are in need of financial support to assist in their marriage. These couples come from families in poverty and are in great need of assistance, often with brides from rural areas with no formal education. The local churches are already helping pay for the weddings and securing housing, but additional support is needed to pay for furnishings and appliances in the homes. $400 will assist one newly wed couple. Please consider the blessing of supporting these needy young families.
