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.

Gusour’s vision is to provide opportunities for all society members of all cultural backgrounds to build bridges of understanding, acceptance, and cooperation through art and cultural activities.

One of the goals of Gusour culture Center is to help the deaf and the hearing impaired to integrate with the society by organizing Egyptian sign-language courses which enable the trainees to deal with the deaf community in their own language. These courses also cover the nature of the deaf people, types of deafness, the problems of the deaf and their relation with the society.

The program will start by an introduction at 7 AM in El-Sawy Cultural Wheel. Running will start at 7: 30 AM to 8:30AM around Zamalek area for 4 KM with the deaf community. Enjoy learning about the deaf culture and the sign language at 8:30 AM at El-Sawy where Gusour will represent awareness session about “The Deaf in Egypt”. You are welcome to join any part of the day for free.

See you all on Friday!

Gusour Cultural Center

My dear friends,
As I look back at 2017, I found that our Gusour (Bridges) Cultural Center has served 1,773 people. The vast majority of these are young adults, both Muslim and Christian. Those young adults participated in 40 different cultural events and workshops in the areas of photography, art, and sign language. There was also a monthly cinema club during which they showed films. They also held musical concerts. I am so encouraged by this, because All Saints has become so open to the community and engaging with all members of the community.
