05/02/2022 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – In Egypt, Omar worked as a treasurer in a public school to support his family. Last year, the headmaster of the school reported a sum of stolen money and falsely accused Omar as the thief. The headmaster of the school gathered the Muslim teachers and began insulting him, saying, “That’s a shame to assign a Coptic (Christian) teacher to treasury duties!”

Omar was suspended from his position and forced to pay the sum of money to the school. As a result, he had to take out a loan, which he is struggling to afford.

In order to keep afloat, he found work on a farm where he gained experience raising livestock. ICC purchased a cow for Omar so that he could earn his own income and support his family without fear of repercussions from his Muslim coworkers.
