 Christian News, Updated Daily - Christian Today > UK Christians to Fund Primary School in Egypt's 'Garbage City'
The Barnabas Fund, with projects in 40 countries, pledged to build the two-story Pillar of Faith School — a name chosen by the Egyptian Christians to show how important faith is to them — in the “well-known” garbage city, the name of which cannot be disclosed to protect the Egyptian Christians.
According to the Barnabas Fund, Egypt for centuries was a stronghold for Christianity, in particular the port of Alexandria which served as the centre for Christian learning.
In response to desperate needs of those living in the “garbage city,” the Barnabas Fund has adopted the community and seeks to bring transformation in the lives of the Christians living there.
