Hope of Egypt

In 2004, Hope of Egypt began offering sponsorship of individual children through congregations of the Church of God in several areas of Egypt.

The families and children of the Church of God in Egypt have suffered during these politically unsettled times.  The recent unrest has at times jeopardized the lives of our sponsored children and their families.  Children of Promise (Hope of Egypt) and the Church of God in Egypt needs our prayers and support during these difficult times.   

Hope of Egypt ministers to children in urban slum settings as well as rural communities.  Life is difficult for families, with resources and amenities in short supply.  As the families are a religious minority in an Islamic country, the Church is so vital to the support and encouragement of children and their families in their spiritual walks and in daily life.

The cost of sponsoring a child in Egypt is $32 per month. Your support is giving a very special child hope and a future.  Thank you!
