The children eat 3 proper meals - every day and have running water in the showers and toilets. You cannot imagine how amazing these things, we take for granted, are to these, funny, creative, cheeky children.

Our work is primarily directed towards impacting the lives of the current generation of children living and working in the garbage village of Mottamodia, Cairo.
For the past 10 years or so we have raised funds to build classrooms, provide teaching equipment, install a computer room and build modern hygienic toilet and wash facilities within the St Georges Church in the

But perhaps our finest project is our summer camp. This is where we take as many children as we can fund each year to a resort on the shores of the Red Sea.
