The Widowed Mothers of Egypt Return to Work

The COVID-19 pandemic in Egypt has been gradually improving since mid-July. The numbers of COVID cases and deaths has been decreasing and the number of recoveries has been increasing. The government has eased lockdown restrictions, and people are returning to work and school.

However, Egyptians are only just beginning to come to grips with the staggering economic toll this crisis has taken upon families of all walks of life. This is especially true of families who have lost the father, the traditional breadwinner in Egyptian society.

The B’edaya mothers – many of whom operate small businesses out of their own homes -- handled the lockdown in a variety of ways. Some were able to close down temporarily, while some of those who operated essential groceries stayed in business. Now the time has come for those who waited out the lockdown to return to work. Fortunately, they have a dependable partner at their side in the form of Coptic Orphans. The Coptic Orphans field staff is now contacting the B’edaya mothers to assess each case individually, while providing guidance and support.

The worst of this crisis has hopefully passed, but it is crucial that each family maintain their finances in these difficult economic times. The resilient, hardworking mothers of the B’edaya project have shown time and again that they possess the strength and skills to weather any storm that comes their way.
