We actually account for more than the 6 million number the government accredits us with. That has to do with government downplay of christians and the fact that they even screw up the government id cards in Egypt by accident and on purpose to change religious status in their system, which further lowers the actual total.

Another big factor is the discrimination we face when applying for a job with A christian mention on the government id. It's a real tragedy and not too many people know what 's going on in Omm el Dunyya
