You Did It!

A's Safe House is Open Becasue of Your Generosity.

 

Because of your generosity, we have almost hit the $1600 which we sent to Abeer's Safe House for abused girls.
We cannot thank you enough.
Abeer opened the house back and the girls are safe now.

She still needs monthly supporters for $6000 monthly to keep all the girls lodged, fed and sustained with medical care, counceling and skill training for jobs.

But at least the girls are back and safe from their otherwise abusive environments.

 

Thank you.

 

Just wanted to hail all of you who donated.

Divorce Care for Kids

I wanted to share with you some good news about Not Guilty.
I have been trying to get the copyright to translate DC4K (Divorce Care for Kids) into Arabic.
DC4K is a ministry that does not exist in the Middle East and is undoubtedly much needed.
When we were young, we never heard of Christians who got divorced, but unfortunately, today, almost 50% of Christians marriages in the Middle east end in divorce.
Despite all the pain and ugliness of divorce, yet the ones who suffer most are the children. Then rejection, the guilt that maybe if they had been good, the anger and the sadness are just a few things of what the kids go through.
Unfortunately, no one tackles this problem of the trauma that the kids suffer.
When I started attending the American church, I found they had Divorce care and divorce care for kids.
My spirit stirred in me to start this in the Middle East.
I got the OK to translate yesterday, together with $5000 in seed money.
We will need a total of $12,000 to translate, train trainers, print material, and get game needs.
We will start translating and start initially with online groups.




Thank you for your constant support and encouragement.

I love you all.

A's Safe House is Closing- We Need Your Help

During one of my visits to A's Safe House.
During one of my visits to A's Safe House.



This is an urgent message.


There are very few  safe houses in Egypt. A's safe house is closing   because of COVID19. (No one had COVID19 in the safe house, mind you!)

A. , the owner of the safe house, cannot feed the girls anymore.

Please send an urgent gift today to help provide basic needs like food, medical care, and counseling for the 20 girls at the safe house. All girls have been saved from prostitution, human trafficking, and sexual abuse.

Safe houses are illegal in Egypt because they are considered by the government as brothels.

Magda is a 14-year-old girl who is raped daily by her four older brothers. She found solace in Abeer's safe house.
Magda is just one of 20 girls that Abeer saved from human trafficking, abuse, and prostitution.

Your gift today will help provide basic needs like food and shelter for a girl like Magda.
A. and her husband, M run a daycare for 200 kids. She uses the proceeds from the daycare to fund the safe house.
When COVID hit, they had to shut the daycare indefinitely.
The safe house suffered terribly. She had to send the girls away because she could not feed them anymore.

A.  provides medical services, counseling, spiritual formation, and teaches them a trade at zero cost to the girls.
Each girl costs $300 a month.
She needs $6000 per month to feed, counsel, and provide medical assistance to the 20 girls.

A would never ask on her own. But God prompted me to call her on Sunday. When I asked how she was, she lost it. She told me,  "Sending the girls away, knowing that they will be raped every day is torture to me. But, I was watching the girls starve."
"This is not right." I thought to myself.

I am personally supporting A's's safe house since 2009.
I have seen girls who have finished their recovery program and have gone off to work and support themselves.
I have seen the girls doing their daily chores, thankful to have the closest thing to a family.

Not Guilty's budget is tight, and we do not have the extra to figure out how to help survivors at Abeer's safe house. And every day they stay away from the safe house counts.
Send an emergency gift right now.
