Mark of the Cross
We met this young boy (left) in Cairo’s “Garbage City” just after he received a tattoo of the cross on his wrist. Despite persecution and ostracism for their faith, nearly all of Egypt’s Christians take this as an outward sign of their faith. His courageous testimony reminds us of the huge challenges he will inevitably face growing up as a Christian in Egypt. ICC supports dozens of kids, just like him, to get special help in school and mentoring for their physical and spiritual needs.
