Al-Manara Center for Special needs Service of Episcopal/Anglican Church in Egypt organizes rehabilitation sessions for children with special needs from next Saturday to the end of the week in the center’s headquarters in Menouf city.
Janet Shamie, director of the Center, explained that individual sessions for children will be conducted by the center’s teachers to develop the skills needed to rehabilitate them before they join the school classes at the beginning of the new school year, adding: To create a child-teacher relationship, observe every new child and choose the appropriate classroom, we will meet with parents in early September.
Janet pointed out that the meeting included discussing precautionary measures to be observed and listening to any suggestions by parents, indicating that the center divides students into classes according to their mental abilities.
The Manara Center is part of the Province of Alexandria for the Episcopal/Anglican Church in Egypt and North Africa, established in 2003 to support disabled people and provide them with rehabilitation and education services after the Church noted the lack of such services in Menouf city.
It is worth mentioning that the Province of Alexandria for the Episcopal/Anglican Church is the 41st region of this church around the world, and it includes under its presidency 10 countries in Egypt and North Africa, and is under the presidency of the Archbishop of Canterbury and belongs to the Episcopal/Anglican Church Union in the world.
In Egypt, the Episcopal/Anglican Church was established in 1815 and the first Episcopal/Anglican Church was founded in Alexandria in 1839 when it was given a plot of land in Alexandria’s Manisha square to establish the Episcopal/Anglican Church of St. Mark by Mohamed Ali Pasha the Ruler of Egypt at this time.
