Keep Egypt’s Christians from fading away

When Pope Francis announced his 2015 visit to the United States, he filled millions of Americans with joy.

But as our Holy Father knows, too many families — in many parts of the world — struggle with poverty, intolerance and violence. Joyous isn’t a word that describes their lives.

This is especially true for Egypt’s Coptic Christians. In the past few years, during periods of civil unrest, they’ve endured repeated attacks by those who hate.

At the moment, most live in a state of uneasy peace among their non-Christian neighbors. During the past four years, 400,000 Christians have left. Those who remain are treated as second class citizens, in the land they’ve called home for 2,000 years.

Here at Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA), we’re supporting the work of Egypt’s churches and religious sisters. We’ve joined in their struggle to keep these Christian communities whole.

Donate to CNEWA, and they’ll know they’re not forgotten. You’ll help Christian children — including orphans and the disabled — receive education and vital care. You’ll assist families by funding expanded pastoral services. You’ll support the training of new sisters and priests, who’ll work among them during the years ahead.

As the world focuses on those who struggle in other parts of the world, let’s not forget these good people. Please give what you can. Help Egypt’s Christians survive.
