Boulaq Center Visits the elders at their homes

After celebrating Christmas with the poor and the widows, Boualq center took one more step to visit the bedridden elders. Boulaq center supports 46 bedridden elders, who may or may not have any family members to look after them, in slum areas e.g. Mostorod, Mataria, Kollaly, Sabtia, Boulaq, Toson st., Abdel-Hamid St., and Nour city. Let us pray for them as well as the elders and the family they support.

Boulaq Center celebrates Christmas with the poor and the widows

On Wednesday 3rd of January, Bishop Mouneer along with Boulaq Center Team celebrated Christmas with the poor families and the widows. More than 125 ladies, of which more than 70 are widows, and around 70 children attended the celebration. The celebration started by words of prayers led by the Bishop. “What does Christmas mean? Why did Jesus come to earth?” was his message to the ladies. Afterwards, Bishop Mouneer honored 4 volunteers help in the center; Mariam Gaballa, Samira Masoud, Nema Shafik and Madona Samy. Because of their gratitude, Bishop Mouneer was surprised by “Thank You” gift from Mario, a blind child sponsored by Boulaq Center. At the end of the celebration, Christmas gifts were distributed to the families and the children.

Let us pray for the center as they do the good work of the Lord. Let us also pray for;

  • Heba’s family as her son recently became a drug addict after very difficult situations he encountered.
  • Marline, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer after being married for just few months.
  • Catherine and Beshara, a couple who were diagnosed to have Hepatitis C. This recent discovery will affect their work opportunities and their treatment costs 500 L.E. per month, more than what they can afford.
