Project Update: Hope for Persecuted Women in Egypt

“The biggest problem for our people that makes them leave this village is because of the land grabbing,” explains a village elder. Like many families in the region, they are shepherds. Villages own large sections of land, giving them legal rights to graze their livestock. The rule is simple: graze your livestock on your village’s land.
Land grabbing breaks this rule—and so much more. Statistically, the land grabbing of Christian areas has caused a more rapid decline of Christianity from the country than the genocide of ISIS.
With ICC’s support and that of other legal partners, a court case was opened. Having someone outside the village, monitoring and ensuring that their case moved forward, was essential. Thankfully, this time the courts ruled in favor of the Christian villagers, protecting their property rights. Although their Muslim neighbors have opened an appeal to contest the decision, this was an important step forward.
Sometimes, and often in ways more sinister, it is the slow drip of rights being taken away. But at least in this valley, the active presence of Christianity continues for another day. Read more: bit.ly/37MNpqH… See MoreSee Less
Ed de Bruin just that you know in an upscale city like Hyderabad you know when buying a place what they see 1st? They see the papers and if they know its a christian owner the buyer buys without a second thought…this is the trend in Hyderabad so you can estimate the confidence they have on Christians!!!
Painful as it is, it must sound familiar to many non-Christians who saw their lands grabbed by us Christians. Have we ever expressed our apologies?
This is how Islam grows, its an easy way to grow rich, stealing what belings to tgose who are not Muslims.
Are you on the hunt for internship opportunities this summer?
ICC’s internships offer students and other career-minded individuals an incredible opportunity to gain experience in areas such as non-profit ministry, international relations, humanitarian aid, writing, research, Capitol Hill advocacy, communications, graphic design, and media relations, while serving those who are persecuted for their faith.
