– Christians prepare Ramadan meal for fasting Muslims
Despite recent violence and persecutions, Coptic Christians in Egypt – Cairo to be precise took it upon themselves to make food for their neighbors and friends who are observing the Ramadan fasting period.
The country which is dominated by Muslims witness Christians in the region of Cairo making food for there fasting friends and neighbors.
Dawoud Riyad, a middle-aged Christian man, set up tables in a street near his Cairo home last week, serving free home-cooked meals to hungry passersby when it was time for them to break their fast for the Iftar evening meal.
Tarek Ali who also benefited from the kind gesture said “They invited me and my kids, and I was surprised. They laid the table out on the street with no difference between sheikhs, Christians or Muslims – they pulled everyone to the table to break their fast,”
Several Christian families in Riyad’s area pitch in daily to provide the food and drink in what he calls an effort to unite people of different faiths during a holy time of year.
Copts make up about 10 percent of Egypt’s 92 million people.
“We all live in the same square, we’re all brothers and friends, I’ve raised this man’s son (alongside my own son) and he’s Muslim,” Riyad said, pointing to a neighbor.
