Easter Blessings for Palm Sunday Attack Victims

Young victims of the Palm Sunday attack in Tanta, Egypt smile from a hospital bed.

EGYPT – A Palm Sunday attack orchestrated by ISIS in Egypt injured and killed dozens of worshipers at two services in Alexandria and Tanta. One week later, Operation Blessing staff visited with victims in the hospital, bringing relief and hope.

On Easter Sunday, OBI met with victims of the attack on St. George’s Cathedral in Tanta. Operation Blessing delivered flowers and Easter gifts to the children still receiving treatment there.

Many of the victims who died in the attacks were the primary breadwinners for their families. Without them, their widows and children are left picking up the pieces, wondering how they will survive.

Operation Blessing has pledged to help 12 of the most vulnerable families with the gift of food to help carry them through. The families are thankful for the assistance, but OBI is looking for opportunities to do more to serve these precious brothers and sisters in Christ.
