Maggie Gobran, known as “Mama Maggie”, kisses the foot of a child as she places a new slipper on her foot after washing her feet at a community development center she founded, in the Manshiet Nasr neighborhood of Cairo, Egypt Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015. “I want each child to know how much I love them. I appreciate them, I respect them,” she said. Her organization, called Stephen’s Children after Christianity’s first martyr, has started nearly 90 such centers and she estimates they have assisted more than 30,000 low-income Egyptian families.
