THINK BIG. ACT BIGGER

Goals

Extending love, compassion and an open, accommodating heart to our beloved brothers and sisters in Egypt.

Services

BLESS CANADA has a variety of projects and activities, specially designed to meet the different and special needs of our disadvantaged Coptic brothers and sisters in Egypt.

SPONSORING A FAMILY

Provides monthly aid to more than a thousand families living in extreme hardship. These families have no income as a result of the death, absence, or terminal illness of the head of the household. There are many families that are severely impoverished and cannot even feed their families.

MEDICAL ASSISTANCE

Dispenses aid to a large number of chronically ill individuals, and a variety of medical treatments including surgeries, kidney dialyses, emergency treatment, hospitalizations, medication, laboratory tests and x-rays. There are many lives lost from lack of medication, and from minor, easily treatable diseases. All these needless deaths of children and adults could be easily prevented through affordable health care.

ASSISTANCE OF THE HANDICAPPED

Provides for the many needs of mentally and physically handicapped children and adults. Prostheses (artificial limbs) and medical equipment (wheelchairs, hearing aids, etc.) are in great demand. We in Canada live in an environment that accommodates the handicapped and facilitates their mobility and livelihood. However, in Egypt, these essentials are unavailable.

EDUCATION

Cares for hundreds of students of all ages (whether in primary school, high school, technical school, or college). It also provides training for teachers and literacy programs. The cost of education has greatly risen (more than 350% in the past 10 years). Also in certain parts of Egypt, illiteracy is 50% among men and 70% among women.

EMERGENCY FUND

Provides assistance and relief to those areas of Egypt that have suffered damage from natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods. This fund also provides aid to families that suffer from fanatical attacks, aggression and terrorism.

HOUSING

Provides housing for the homeless, those emigrating from Upper Egypt (El-sa’eed), and those living in overcrowded housing. Harsh conditions, where several families live together in one apartment, sharing everything including one bathroom, can lead to moral and religious depravation.

MARRIAGE EXPENSE ASSISTANCE

Assists young women with marriage costs. This protects our daughters from many dangers and pitfalls.

FUNDING FOR THE UNDERDEVELOPED

Helps needy families with no income to start small projects to create job opportunities and help them generate income for their families.

GENERAL FUND

Distributed among the funds/projects listed above, based on the needs of those projects.

ANTI DRUGS & AIDS CENTER

BLESS is dedicated to combating the ever increasing issue of drug addiction and AIDS across Egypt and Sudan by creating awareness as well as providing care, follow-up and relapse prevention services.

CHANGE A LIFE TODAY

As long as poverty, injustice & inequality persist, none of us can truly rest. It doesn’t take much to change a life, Get in touch today and start making the difference.
