Since the inception of the COVID-19 crisis most of the Sisters of The Holy Monastery of The Prophet Moses have stayed at the motherhouse, The Holy Monastery of Gennadius Scholarius near Thessalonika, Greece. In the absence of most of the community unusually heavy rains damaged the Church of Sts. Cosmas & Damianos located inside the walls of the Holy Monastery of The Prophet Moses located in present-day Wadi Feiran, South Sinai, Egypt.
All materials and skilled craftsmen must come from Greece or Cairo as there are no such craftsmen in South Sinai willing to go to Wadi Feiran as it is in a military exclusion zone and there are no local police or army units. The materials transport alone is $900 USD and there is the cost of materials, workers, transportation, food and lodging. All total the repairs will cost about $5,000 USD.
Please donate to this worthy cause. Friends of The Holy Monastery of the Prophet Moses is a U.S. IRS registered 501c3 charity and as such all contributions are tax deductible. Our IRS EIN is 47-1925057.
