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.
30 years of Coptic Orphans’ disaster resilience work for the children:
6,965 Hygiene Kits Distributed
122 Medical Professionals Educated
1,272 Health Workshops Held
2,055 Urgent Medical Cases Covered
65,000 children’s lives transformed
Working in 700 villages across Egypt

250 widows have started businesses using Coptic Orphans microloans
550 Church-based volunteers mentor the children in their own homes
