Saint Mary Welfare Project Of Sangkhlaburi
COPTS supports the Saint Mary welfare project, which aims to establish a centre that accommodates around 220 orphans, and poor underprivileged children in the area of Sangklaburi, Thailand.
The area of Sangklaburi is known to contain a large number of orphaned children, who have lost their families as a result of the ruthless military regime of Myanmar close to the border. Christian tribes have been forced to leave their homes and flee to the jungle in this area, with massacres leaving behind widows, wounded elderly and orphaned children. Living conditions in this area are extremely poor.
The project falls under the Diocese’s registered welfare foundation in Bangkok.
Happy Heart Center El Mansoura
One of the many projects that COPTS supports is the Happy Heart Centre, which cares for mentally disable young people. The Centre was established in 2005 in Mansoura and is run by a group of servants from St. Mary’s Church in the region.
The Centre provides vital care for mentally disabled children, some of which have been exploited and abused. There is an urgent need to expand and accommodate an increased number of children in the Centre, which is currently renting two flats. By the grace of God, the Centre has now acquired a vacant block of land. However, funds are desperately needed so that building can commence for an equipped home for these children.
C.O.P.T.S. supports over 1500 poor villages, mainly in Upper Egypt.
With the generous support of its donors, C.O.P.T.S. has successfully restored the dignity of thousands of people living in poverty by providing them with basic necessities.
To date COPTS has provided:
- a clean water supply for over 100,000 homes
- sewage services for over 65,000 homes
- electricity for 40,000 homes
- roofing, walls and floors for 78,000 homes.
