Medical Care Restored in Egypt

Medical Care Restored in Egypt

by  – CURE

 

With the world events in Japan and Libya, the recent political upheaval in Egypt has taken a backseat. However, all of Egypt continues to recover from the disruption of the protests in January and February, including CURE’s medical outreach to the disabled children of that country.

I am happy to report that we restarted our medical activities at the end of February, and children are again being seen in clinic.

Last December, CURE began a program at two hospitals in Cairo that provides charity medical care to disabled children whose families have limited means to pay for treatment. The program is focused in Cairo, but has already reached towns several hours by road from the city.

CURE has partnered with the Good Shepherd and Angelo American Hospitals to provide the care and medical treatment of these beautiful children. We are working with two of the better pediatric orthopedic surgeons in Cairo, who welcomed the opportunity to heal these children in need.

Our program coordinator, Mina, is a young Egyptian pharmacist, passionate for the overall mission of CURE. He not only oversees the medical clinics and hospital treatment activities, but he becomes a care giver to each child seen in the program. He reduces their anxieties with chocolates and his warm smile, and he prays with their parents throughout the medical process. It has been a joy to see lives being changed, even in this politically volatile area of the world.

When you give to CURE,

you are being part of the cure for thousands

of children around the globe

who need healing more than you can imagine>>>

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
