Covid — the biggest crisis of our lifetime — is hitting Egypt hard. Millions of children are at increasing risk of malnutrition, poverty, and disease.
You can bring safety and security to a child in crisis. Please sponsor today!

We deliver much more than disaster relief in this crisis – we provide disaster resilience.

You may be used to seeing disaster relief arrive in the form of trucks unloading supplies.

Disaster resilience – what Coptic Orphans delivers with your generous gift – is different, especially during this once-in-a-lifetime covid crisis.

To protect the children, Coptic Orphans is delivering a three-month emergency food advance, urgent medical care, trauma and mental health support, hygiene products and training, emergency access to online learning, and other necessities.

What makes Coptic Orphans’ work so different – and so suited for preparing families in Egypt to be resilient in the face of disaster – is that our specially trained Church-based volunteers already know each family we serve. We’ve worked with them to overcome many challenges, and share the goal of their long-term independence, dignity, and development.

How You Can Change a Child’s Life


Across Egypt there are thousands of orphaned boys and girls who are waiting for just one caring adult to unlock their God-given talents. You can be that person and share in the great blessing of changing lives by giving to support the children’s education and mentoring today!


By God’s grace, you can give a fatherless Coptic child both hope and access to a quality education that can change their life forever!  By sponsoring an orphaned boy or girl in an impoverished Egyptian community, you ensure that a Church-based mentor and advocate will fight for their rights, teach them healthy life skills, and plan for their success in education.


By dedicating your birthday, baptism, or wedding to helping the fatherless children in Egypt, you make it possible for these boys and girls to develop the life skills they need to overcome threats like disease, hunger, FGM, and discrimination.


Urgent Needs
You can give to meet the Urgent Needs of Coptic families who face devastating crises! Whether it’s a medical emergency that needs a doctor’s attention, a house in need of immediate repair to keep out the cold rain, or a new front door to keep a family safe, you can be the person whose generosity changes and even saves lives!

Urgent Needs

Your prayers for the children and their families are a vital part of ensuring their happiness, safety, and success in life! Please add your voice to the rest of the Coptic Orphans family, as we thank our Lord for the countless blessings our boys and girls are receiving, and pray for their protection.
