Sudanese, South Sudanese celebrate Christmas in Egypt
Issued on: Modified:
For Christians, Christmas is seen as a time for people to come together with those that matter most to them. In a year that has seen the refugee crisis touch the shores of Europe, community is particularly meaningful for those fleeing their homes. At least 31,000 Sudanese and South Sudanese people have fled years of fighting in their countries to find a new home in Egypt. For many, finding a place to worship is a key part of finding a new home, especially at Christmas time. Correspondent Ruth Michaelson sent us this report from Cairo, on the Sudanese, South Sudanese and Egyptian communities who celebrate Christmas in one church.
