Our Egyptian partners need your prayers and donations as they stand strong in the midst of chaos.
Samaritan’s Purse was called upon to help people in Egypt who lost their homes during the country’s political upheaval in 2013.
These victims were among many who became homeless when their houses were burned. Others lost jobs and businesses. Still more fled their homes due to imminent threats.
Despite terror in the streets, local Christians found refuge in God, who the Bible says is “a strong tower against the foe” (Psalm 61:3, NIV).
“We’re not oblivious to the real war with which we’re engaged,” said one of our partners. “It is not with flesh and blood, but with the evil principalities that demonstrate, more than ever, the one who came to steal, kill, and destroy.”
The Egyptian Church reacted by praying and fasting even more fervently.
“We’re pleading with the God of Heaven to come and give all Egyptians life more abundantly,” our partner said.
Victims on all sides of the conflict and their families were also the focus of their prayers.
“These people are in need of prayer and all kinds of help—spiritually, materially, and psychologically because of the trauma, and we’re trying to give a hand to support the need,” said our partner.
Please join our Egyptian brothers and sisters in prayer. And please give generously towards our relief efforts in Egypt and around the world. As our partner mentioned, your gifts will help bring victims the “spiritual, material, and psychological” support they need when caught in crisis.
