Sheikh Haroun welfare center

Sheikh Haroun district is one of the poor areas of Aswan. Here, EMO runs a little center, where children, young people and women meet weekly. Most of them come from Christian families. With biblical schooling and discussions of issues relevant to their daily lives the women receive help in their often-difficult circumstances, which often involve a struggle for financial survival. Young people get a perspective for their lives and realize that alcohol or drugs are not a solution. The children enjoy running around the little garden, the only green spot in the whole area. And afterwards they listen carefully to the biblical stories dedicated workers tell them.
