I received an email this week from Mina Ayoub, our Program Director in Cairo, Egypt. CURE has been offering care to disabled children in Egypt for the past eighteen months. In his email, Mina wrote:
Thanks also for all [CURE] has done for CURE Egypt, your idea in establishing a program in Egypt and all your instructions helped about 100 patients up till now. Without [CURE's] idea those children were going to grow up and live their lives as disabled people.
Even with all the political troubles occurring in this country (almost since our program started), CURE has been able to offer the hope of healing to these children and their families. Thanks to our Egypt staff for their commitment to our mission despite the daily challenges of a transitioning government.
