Who we are
Mission of Rural Egypt "MORE" is a registered Canadian charitable organization!
We are involved in collecting donations from around the world and transferring all collected donations to Egypt for use as directed by its Board of Directors in Canada.
Reverend Ezzat Shaker is our sole agent in Egypt and he has a committee working with him when distributing these funds to needy churches, orphanages, hospitals, schools for disabled children, emergency and costly medical procedures, helping with expenses for homes for senior citizens, education for orphans and many other emergency needs that may arise such as car accidents and the like. Inflation has been rampant as food prices have risen quite substantially and the cost for medical care has become prohibitive especially for the poor and needy.
As We Continue
Meetings were held once annually at Knox Presbyterian Church in downtown Toronto. Donors were approached personally for donations. Our first donation to Egypt was for a total of $ 1200. U.S. and was sent at the end of 1970.
Reviving the Untended Churches in Rural Egypt project, funded repairs for abandoned churches, subsidized expenses for neigbouring pastors to tend the dispersed flock, built rooms for visiting laymen to encourage them to go to these remote areas in Egypt.
We endeavour to promote the work of the gospel of Jesus Christ in destitute areas in Rural Egypt. We believe:
- There is one God, eternally existent in three persons, namely, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- The Bible is the inspired, inerrant and infallible word of God.
- Eternal salvation is through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ alone.
- As long as we are in this world, our life must reflect the teachings of Jesus.
