Coptic Peace Association distributes Ramadan cartons to poor

Thu, May. 24, 2018
CAIRO – 24 May 2018: In celebration of the holy month of Ramadan, the Coptic Peace Association distributed cartons of basic commodities to the poor people of Cairo’s Shubra district on Wednesday.

The ceremony was held in the hall of Marjerjis Hospital in Shubra. Matta Sawiris, head of the association, said that this day is an extension of the 50-year march, adding, "We set up the first Iftar in the church in 1969 until we inaugurated it in 2004; Egypt is mentioned in the Gospel more than 500 times and five times in the Qur’an.”

Sheikh Mohammed Qutb said that the Muslims and Christians are one blood, stressing that the distribution of such aid without distinction between Muslim and Christian is an important message and must appear in the public opinion.

For his part, MP Ehab El-Tamawy congratulated all Egyptians for the holy month of Ramadan, stressing that the Shubra neighborhood is mixed with homes of Muslims and Copts.

Taha al-Ashri, a Shubra resident, donated two kitchens to the orphans of the church's children in Shubra.

At the end of the ceremony, the assembly distributed Qur’ans and Gospels to all Muslims and Copts to attending.
