CURRENT SITUATION IN CAIRO-EGYPT

As a result of the Egyptian Revolution against the previous ruling regime which took place in January and February 2011, most of the foreigners living in Cairo and the rest of Egypt left the country due to the instability and as advised by their respective embassies as a safety precaution.

 

Consequently, many Sudanese refugees lost their jobs and were forced to stay at home without any opportunity to get or access new employment which would enable them to support their families with food and daily life needs and requirements.

This critical situation, by one way or another seriously affected the children of these Sudanese refugees as they, through lack of food developed are being forced into a state of hunger and near starvation.

Nonetheless, the adults themselves also started to face great difficulties in buying the much food and paying the rent of their homes due to lack of money as helpless refugees. Even many of them became homeless as they could not pay the rental fees or find any means to do so.

 

At this junction, as it is very clear and obvious, an urgent humanitarian situation has emerged and it requires urgent intervention by the humanitarian agents and good hearted persons in order to minimize this hazard and relieve these heavy burdens from the victimized Sudanese refugee families and their children.

In fact they are in great need of substantial support in the form of relief basic food items as follows: Macaroni, Flour, Sugar, Oil, Milk, Tea, Tomato paste, Salt, Dried Lentils, Rice, Beans, Onions and Potatoes, Pastas or any other food items. All are most welcome to visit our center and are free to contact us at anytime to make donations and all will be distributed within the Sudanese Refugee community whose children are cared for at Naath Community Development in Maadi, Cairo. We thank you in advance for your kindness and support.

Personal stories from Naath (names changed to protect confidentiality):

They are 3-5 years old. Their mothers work from 8:00am-7:00pm at night. Often, mothers cannot find other people to care for their children. Without Naath Community Development Daycare, mothers could not work, and the child would not have anywhere safe to go while the mother works. If the mother does not work, they will not be able to afford food for the family or rent, which will leave them starving and homeless.

With Naath Community Development, mothers can go to work safe in the knowledge that their children will be well-cared for by members of their own Sudanese Refugee community.
