But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”
Today’s case is about a young man called Ashraf .He is 29 years old. He came from Sohag to Cairo when he was 13 years old. He was a jack of all trades and had many jobs. He worked as an apprentice of a carpenter, plumber, then at a fish restaurant. His daily wage is OK. He married his cousin in 2008.They got 2 sons Karas and Abanoub. Abanoub was born deaf and mute. He was checked by many doctors and they said he needed several operations; one of them is cochlear implant in both ears and it is a costly operation that costs 130 to 140 thousand pounds. Ashraf’s daily wage is meager. He asked all charities and churches to provide him with the operation’s costs. He met Fr.Karas by chance and he recommended him to resort to Athobony. He has four brothers yet their income is meager and can’t help him as they can hardly lead a normal life. His parents are so poor and he is supposed to provide for them. He wishes he could have helped them. He is in bad need for help, though asking for donations is so hard for him. He has never asked anyone for money. He just needs his son to be a normal child and lead a normal life .He urges you to help his son to be able to speak, hear and be able to lead a normal life.
The need: Undergo an operation of cochlear implant as soon as possible
