Are you a refugee in Egypt? In need of help? Click the icons below to learn more about each of our programs and how we can help.

 

HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE

We register refugees when they first arrive in Cairo in our office in Zamalek. After registration and a brief assessment process, we aim to provide food, clothing, blankets and emergency support for refugees and their families in their first 2 years in Egypt—to help refugees find their footing as they arrive in Cairo.

Monday–Thursday, 10am–3pm, in Zamalek
0227 364836 or familysupport@refuge-egypt.org

 

YOUTH OUTREACH

Being a young refugee in Cairo has a lot of pressures—material, communal, and spiritual. To try and overcome these, our Youth Outreach program hosts seminars in vocational training and life skills, as well as fellowship and social activities and mentorship and pastoral support.

Times and locations vary

Programs

Our cleaning course is a two week practical training program that equips refugees with the necessary knowledge and skills to work as a cleaner. The cleaning course trains around 20 refugees a month and presents each course participant with a certificate after passing the end of course exam. 

Our Domestic Placement Office places refugees with prospective employers in a range of jobs, particularly cooking, cleaning, driving, and babysitting. We’ve placed hundreds of refugees in full- and part-time employment in Cairo, giving them an opportunity to sustainably provide for themselves and their families without relying on immediate aid.

Refugees with English language skills have more opportunities for employment and advanced education. And, as English is currently the global language, it also prepares refugees for resettlement abroad. LE 100 per course.
