Family Fund: Assistance to Refugees
For Sudanese living in Cairo regardless of religion, tribe or language
Destabilization, war persecution, famine and extreme economic hardship have forced millions of men, women and children from both Sudan and South Sudan to come to Egypt seeking refuge and safety. Although Egypt offers hospitality, most of the Sudanese find themselves in desperate, precarious situations. Unemployment, poverty, sickness, the trauma of having lost family, friends and home… are just some of the issues they face as the daily struggle for survival continues.

One day a man enters her home and rapes her. From this incident, she has a baby. Although not guilty, she remains marginalized and shunned.

He is so desperate and unstable that he goes missing. His relative, having herself five children starts taking care of his children, as well.
