ICC Provides Home Goods for Egyptian Believers in Need

10/22/2018 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – In Cairo, one neighborhood has become a safe haven for Muslim-background believers who fled their homes because of persecution. All of these believers faced intense persecution because of their conver­sion from Islam. Their lives are at risk if they return home or if their location is discovered. Many are living in desperate circumstances, in small rooms without furniture, and most work for very low wages. ICC identified multiple individuals who needed special attention under these circumstances.

  • Asim’s family abused her and locked her out of the house when they learned of her conversion. They also shaved her hair and eyebrows, and burned 12 marks on her body. She escaped and landed in the neighborhood. The only furniture in her house was a mattress.
  • Muhammad was once an engineer who provided for his family’s needs by working in the Gulf. His family asked him to return home to slaughter his brother, who had become a Christian. He tried to raise the knife to slaughter him, but the brother called on Jesus and Muhammad’s hand immediately stiffened. Jesus appeared to him, and Muhammad learned about Christ through his brother. Now, he works as a plumber and lives in a basement without any furniture.

Your generosity enabled us to provide these individuals and others with basic furniture to improve their living conditions.
