Diocese seeking funds to repatriate foreign prisoners from Egypt
Please consider helping prisoners during this Christmas season. The Prison Ministry is planning on purchasing plane tickets in order for foreign released prisoners to return home in time for Christmas. Even after foreign prisoners have completed their sentence, they are not able to leave the prison unless they have a plane ticket to their home country purchased. Many of the prisoners can not afford to buy a ticket.
We need to purchase 7 plane tickets to Ethiopia (4,460 L.E. each), and 1 ticket to Colombia (14,600 L.E.).
The Diocese of Egypt’s Prison Ministry helps meet the material, emotional, and spiritual needs of the foreign prisoners at the El Kanatar Prison. On Christmas, the prisoners will be provided with food and gifts.
