GLIMMERS OF GRACE AMID THE GARBAGE SLUMS
Stephen's Children offers hope and transformation for children and families living in Cairo's fetid garbage slums and impoverished communities in rural Upper Egypt. Named for the first Christian martyr, Stephen's Children seeks to amplify his compassion, service, and life-altering allegiance to God's Word. Founded and still guided by the visionary and tenderly devoted leadership
of "Mama Maggie" Gobran, we touch more than 30,000 children and their families through programs that enlist almost 1,500 workers and volunteers. Efforts are focused on neglected children of the garbage slums and other places of poverty in Egypt, encouraging them to experience love, build self worth and seize hold of the hope that is found in Jesus Christ.
