A CATASTROPHE AT MOKATTAM GARBAGE VILLAGE - UPDATES -

ABOUT THE ONGOING PROJECT:-

On January 2010, The Egyptian government decided to demolish 42 house buildings with about 177 families of the poor residents of the rubbish collectors.  Those needy people own nothing but their houses, especially after they have been banned from breeding the pigs, on which they depended to earn their living.  Slaughtering the pigs was behind shrinking their finances to a great percentage.  Therefore, such a decree is considered as a terrible disaster for them.  

As you may know, twice over the past years, some of the large boulders clinging to the mountainside have fallen, and killed many people.  When the second tragedy took place a year ago at AL Dowaka, an area adjoining the Garbage Village, The government launched a campaign to study the area and check if there are still tumbledown rocks threatening people's lives. Unfortunately, they already found some threatening boulders clinging to the mountainside particularly below the monastery area therefore they determined to evacuate the whole area. On the other side the residents of the area refused to leave their homes as they would rather die than abandon the area and loose their work. Actually the people live and work in Garbage Village (El Zabaleen area) for about 40 years and hardly built their homes, which made it impossible for them to earn their living in another place and as a matter of fact those people do not have any other alternative solutions provided for them to make any choices.

Father Samaan Ibrahim, the Pastor and Chairman of St. Samaan the Tanner Monastery at the Garbage Village, negotiated several times with the government Officials and convinced them to delay the demolition of these buildings. Father Samaan brought a group of Geologists and Civil Engineers to study the area, and come up with a plan to purify the area from these threatening boulders which can be disposed of without removing people's homes. They made a plan to be carried out in three main phases. They also drew up the budget required to accomplish this extraordinary project.

We Thank God that, the Governor agreed to this project based only on one condition; that Father Samaan takes full responsibility for the lives of the people. On his part Father Samaan began to carry out the plan and succeeded to finish the first phase of the plan which is the most dangerous of all and now proceeding work in the third phase.

We need a great financial support to complete our project successfully, as we have borrowed most of the money spent in this project.

If you feel that want to share with us, and support the work of God, this would be highly appreciated.   
  
In his Love

Father Samaan Ibrahim
Pastor  & Chairman of St. Samaan The Tanner Monastery at Garbage Village

The Three Main PHASES:-

The First Phase:  Is to remove the large boulders.  The large boulders (from 50 tons to 100 tons) will be split into smaller pieces of 05 to 15 tons each.  This is done with a cutting machine.  Holes are then drilled into these smaller parts, and these are lifted out by a crane and removed to a safe place.

The Second Phase: Is to remove the debris.  After removing all the boulders, the rubble will be loaded onto trucks and taken away from the monastery area, clearing a large distance of 2 meters from the cliffs of the mountain.

The Third Phase:  Is to bind and reinforce the exposed mountain face with a net of steel and concrete.
    
This is the Phase we are working in till today. 


THE BUDGET Required:-


The First Phase: LE. 210 000.-  Around USD 38 182.- / (in July 2010)
1000 Tons of Boulders will be removed.  This requires 30 Days of Work.  The cost of Crane Rental and Labor = LE. 7000.-/day.
 30 days X 7000 = LE. 210 000.- / Around 38 182.-

The Second Phase: LE. 390 000.-  Around USD 70 909.- / (in July 2010)
Removal of 20 000 cubic meters of debris will take 2000 truck loads and requires 30 days of work. 

The cost per load is LE. 120.- X 2000 = LE.  240 000.- / USD 43 636.- /
 (in July 2010)
The cost of Labor per day is LE. 5000.- X 30 days = LE. 150 000.- /
USD 27 272.- / in July 2010.

The Third Phase:  LE. 2 500 000.- / USD 454 545.- / (in July 2010)
The area to bind and reinforce is 10 000 square meters (length:  1000 meters X height:  10 meters)
Each Square Meter costs LE. 250.- (including cost of labor, materials, steel and cement)
LE. 250.- X 10 000 square meters = LE. 2 500 000.- / USD 454 545.-

TOTAL COST of ALL THE STAGES:-

210 000.- + 390 000.- + 2 500 000.- = LE. 3 100 000.- / USD 563 636.-
/ (in July 2010)

TOTAL COST of EACH TON IS:-

LE. 3 100 000.- ÷ 1000 Ton =  LE. 3100.-
Around USD 565.- / (in July 2010)

                      Zum Projekt

Das Ziel dieses Projektes ist 42 Wohnhäuser und 177 Familien zu helfen. Diese sind die Familien der Müllleute, die unterhalb des Klosters wohnen, wo sich die bedrohlichen Felsblöcke befinden.
Das Projekt startete im Januar 2010. Pater Samaan Ibrahim  übernahm sofort die Verantwortung und arbeitete gleich mit einer Gruppe von Geologen und Bauingenieuren zusammen, sowie mit den durchführenden Arbeitern unter der Leitung von Mario.  Mario dient schon seit langer Zeit im Kloster, wo er alle Skulpuren des Klosters geschnitzt hat.

Dem Plan nach, wurden einige Häuser kurz evakuiert, bis die erste Phase vollendet war. Die erste phase ist die gefährlichste, wie Sie gleich sehen werden. Nachdem die erste und zweite Phasen erfolgreich vollendet wurden, sind jetzt alle Familien wieder zu Hause. Und nun wird die Arbeit an der dritten Phase fortgesetzt.

Wir brauchen allerdings eine grosse finanzielle Unterstützung, um dieses Projekt erfolgreich zu verwirklichen. Ihre Unterstützung wird daher sehr hoch geschätzt.

Vielen Dank im Vorraus......
Pater Samaan Ibrahim
Pastor und Abt des „Klosters von Samaan den Schuster “ im Zabbalin Viertel 

Die drei Phasen des Projekts:

Die erste Phase:

Die Entfernung der Felsblöcke:  Die Felsblöcke ( Gewicht ca. 50 – 100 Tonnen) werden in kleinere Blöcke gespalten ca. 5 – 15 Tonnen jeweils. Dies wird mit einem Spaltungsgerät gemacht. Dann werden Löcher in diese Blöcke gebohrt. Ein Kran entfernt diese Blöcke dann weden sie zu einem sicheren Ort transportiert.


Die Zweite Phase:

Die Entfernungs des Schutts:  Nachdem alle Blöcke entfernt sind, wird der Schutt von der Kloster Gegend entfernt, damit wird eine Fläche von ca 2 Meter von der Klippe des Berges freigelegt.

Die Dritte Phase:

Die Befestigung und Stärkung der Hügelseite mit Stahlnetz und Beton.

      Une catastrophe a eu lieu a   Mokattam " Les éboueurs Village - Mansheiet Nasser"


En Janvier 2010, le gouvernement égyptien a décidé  de détruire 42 appartements  qui appartiennent à 177 miséreux résidents.

Ces habitants ne possèdent que ces pauvres logements, surtout en 2009  après que le Gouvernement a décidé l'égorgement des porcs et des cochons qui représentaient  leur seul moyen de vivre. Cette décision était considérée  comme une catastrophe pour ces pauvres résidents 
Durant les dernières années, certains des grands rochers s'accrochant à la montagne sont tombés et ont tué beaucoup de gens.  Ce fait a pousse le Gouvernement a assembler une campagne pour faire une étude et découvrir s'il existe d'autres morceaux de rochers qui peuvent tomber en ruines.
Effectivement ils ont trouve des groupes de ces rochers au dessous du monastère, malgré cette catastrophe les résidents ont refusé de laisser leurs résidences et ont préfère mourir qu'abandonner  la  région ou ils travaillent et vivent il 'y a 40 ans , ce qui rendait l'idée de vivre ailleurs  presque impossible pour ces gens …  Mais d'autre part ils n'avaient pas d'autres solutions.

" Le père Samaan Ibrahim", le président de la monastère de St. Samaan Le Tanneur, a négocié plusieurs fois avec le Gouvernement , il a choisi un groupe de géologues et d' ingénieurs civils pour  faire des études et un plan en ordre de détruire ces rochers progressivement  sans ruiner la vie des habitants. Grace a Dieu le gouvernement a accepte de mettre en œuvre ce projet mais a condition que le père "Samaan Ibrahim " prenne toute la responsabilité.
De sa part,  le père a commencé a pratiquer ce projet et il a déjà  accompli la première phase et la plus dangereuse.

Nous sommes encore en besoin d'un énorme  Support Financier en vue d'achever ce projet.
Si vous êtes intéresses de nous rendre  un support...ca serait considérablement apprécié.
Avec nos meilleurs vœux.



Père Samaan Ibrahim
Pastor  & Chairman of St. Samaan The Tanner Monastery at Garbage Village

 

Les trois phases principales:

La première phase:

C'est d'enlever les grands rochers ... Qui comptent de 50 tonnes a 100 tonnes, les couper en petits morceaux l'un compte de " 5 a 15 tonnes"
Cela va être accompli a l'aide d'une machine qui a le rôle de couper ces rochers en morceaux puis les enlever et les placer dans une place sans risque .

La deuxième phase:

C'est de déplacer les débris..

La troisième phase:

C'est de lier et renforcer le visage expose de la montagne avec un filet d'acier.. actuellement nous somme  en c'est phase.

Le Budget nécessaire pour chaque phase :

Concernant la première phase:
• 210 000 L.E.    / 38 182  $    "JuilleT 2010"
*1000 tonnes de rochers seront enlevées  et cela  necessitera  30 jours de travail .
*Le coût de location des machines = 7000 L.E./ Jour
         
          30 Jours * 7000 L.E = 210 000 L.E.

Concernant la deuxième phase :
• 390 000 L.E. / 70909 $  "Juillet 2010"
*Le déplacement de 20 000 mètres cubes de débris prendra 2000 charges de camion et a besoin de 30 jours de travail .
* Le coût /charge de camion : 120 * 2000 = 240 000 L.E.
* le coût de main d'œuvre/Jour : 5000* 30 Jours = 150 000 L.E.
       
        240 000 + 150 000 = 390 000 L.E.

Concernant la troisième phase :
• 2500 000 L.E. / 454545 $  "Juillet 2010"

*le secteur à lier et a renforcer représente  10 000 mètres carrés
(Longueur 1000 mètres * taille 10 mètres)
*Chaque mètre carré coûte 250 L.E.
(Ce coût y compris : les mains d'œuvre et les matériaux d'acier et de Ciment)
      
       250 L.E..*10 000 mètre carrés =  2 500 000 L.E. / 454 545$

La  Somme =
210 000.- + 390 000.- + 2 500 000.- = LE. 3 100 000.- / USD 563 636.-
Pour chaque tonne =
LE. 3 100 000.- ÷ 1000 Ton =  LE. 3100.-
Around USD 565.- / (in July 2010)

Only the Holy Spirit Can Heal Us
Our Lord JESUS Christ died on the cross and raised up from the dead to give us his Holy Spirit, to enjoy living as his sons and daughters.  This is our Beliefe...


Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;    They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.  So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God..   And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. 
Mark 16: 14-20.
 
Each Thrusday after the Praise and meeting sermons, The Priests of the Monastery pray for people asking Lord Jesus for healing and with the power of his glorious Name and his Holy Spirit together with the faith of the person lot of people receive their healing form demons and illnessess.
