On Monday 24th March, Refuge-Egypt were delighted to invite Bishop Mouneer Anis of the Egyptian Anglican Diocese to celebrate the opening of our newly refurbished Medical Clinic in Zamalek!
Zamalek is a tiny island in the middle of the Nile and has been the main hub of our offices for over 20 years. It is also the site of the Anglican Diocese in Egypt. The clinic here provides primary medical care to African and Syrian refugees. Through our medical staff here we are able to give group health education seminars, one-on-one help for expecting mothers, checks and screening for young children and support for those suffering from malnutrition. We also offer services and information on HIV/AIDs, family planning and TB.
The new clinic is situated just behind the Anglican Cathedral, and has several appointment rooms, a food storage area for food distribution, an accountants/receptionists office, a beautiful terrace, a children's playground and a shaded outdoor waiting area. We are truly blessed to be able to occupy this space!
One of the things that makes the clinic unique is that it brings a whole variety of people from all different backgrounds into the Cathedral complex. We are able to welcome, serve and care for refugees regardless of their background who maybe would never dream of entering a church premises. It is a privilege to host so many faiths and nationalities in such an open space.
We thank the Bishop for his blessing and prayers. We thank all our partners and friends as well, for your faithful prayers and support. Please continue to pray for the Doctors, health workers and staff at the new clinic. Please pray that the Lord will work through us and bless those refugees whom we serve.
We welcome you to come and visit us at the clinic!
