In 2009, Father Daoud Lamei (the founder of the service) assigned a servant for an exploration mission to Burundi, where this servant was intrigued by the fact that the Burundians are very kind people with hearts full of God’s love. Ever since, the Coptic Church decided to take the step to serve the Burundian community, which feels like family, especially that we all drink from the same source (river Nile) that starts in Burundi and ends in Egypt.
Since one of the core values of Christianity and the Coptic Church, is to abide by law, so we legally founded the " Association de L'Eglise Orthodoxe Copte Au Burundi (AEOCB)" to start the church’s ministry and activities.
In response to Burundi’s deep need for medical care, the Coptic Church started by dispatching medical missions to support people. In parallel, the church was sending regular missions to serve people of all ages and social statuses: the kids, the youth, the elders, the widows, the orphans, and anyone who needed our help.
