I thought some of you might like to hear about this and maybe even add your support to it.
One of the group who came from Scotland last week to see me had been sponsoring a child though 'Plan International' for years, here in Egypt. While she was here she went to visit the community that had been set up- visited the school, met the doctors etc etc and had a lovely time with the family and child she had been funding.
Often when you send money abroad to a charity there is a fear that the money isn't being used as you would wish… well Catherine found out, much to her delight, that it was all better than she expected! Plan focus on helping the community help themselves… and provide education, health care and special assistance for those with disabilities.
Those of you who met 'the family' in the city of the dead on previous trips to Egypt with me will be able to imagine exactly what this kind of aid is trying to achieve, and eliminate.
Have a look at their website- maybe you can make a difference in a childs life here in Egypt too.
