On Saturday, December 9, All Saints Cathedral hosted a bazaar to support Syrian refugees and children with special needs. There were many Syrian vendors selling jewelry and handicrafts, and others who sold some of their homemade Syrian and Yemeni dishes. Children with special needs from the Menara Centre also sold some products that they made. Santa Claus made an appearance to raise money for the Prison Ministry. During the bazaar, Refuge Egypt and the Menara Centre held an event indoors. It began with a brief speech from Bishop Mouneer, who talked about the importance of providing hope and support to refugees and people with special needs. Then children from the Menara Centre in Menouf participated in dancing performances. Refuge Egypt also gave a presentation about their work in Cairo, and showed a video about one Syrian refugee women’s story.
