In Egypt: Giving Thanks to God and Garbage

The United Church of Christ's presence in the Middle East is part of our Common Global Ministries, work we do together with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). With more than 270 partner churches and organizations in about 70 countries around the world, the mission of Global Ministries is to provide a "Critical Presence" through ministries of acompañamiento (walking side by side).

With international partners ranging from autonomous churches historically related to the Disciples and the UCC to indigenous churches, schools, healthcare institutions and sustainable development organizations, the priorities of Global Ministries are to meet God's people and creation at the point of deepest need: spiritually, physically, emotionally, and/or economically.
