Horrific Child Abuse in Egypt Orphanage Uncovered

Horrific Child Abuse in Egypt Orphanage Uncovered

Egyptian social media users have erupted in anger following the circulation of a video showing the horrific child abuse of multiple orphans.

The video (above) shows the manager of ‘Dar Mecca Al-Mokarama Orphanage’ on Al-Haram Street in Giza beating young children by kicking them, hitting them with a long stick and spanking them after they opened the fridge and turned on the television.

The manager, identified as Osama Mohamed Othman, is shown brutally beating the orphans and kicking them away, as they run away screaming in pain and crying.

Egyptian social media users have called for the man’s arrest and an investigation into the orphanage.

Update: The man caught on the video abusing the orphans has been arrested by local authorities and the orphans have been transferred to a new orphanage.

According to the Minister of Social Solidarity Ghada Wali, an investigation has been opened into the abuse and the children have been moved to a new orphanage for their safety.

Meanwhile, Al-Ahram has quoted the wife of the orphanage as claiming to have released the video of the child abuse to ‘expose her husband.’

“He used to beat the children and that’s why I filmed him and uploaded it online: in order to expose him,” said Elham Eid Awad to Al-Ahram.

    one wrong does not make a right. Even if this man is CRUEL and DISGUSTING. This Monster deserves to be put in jail and that,s it. This person is bad but beating him does not make it right. Yes this man is cruel and he should be punished horrible but it needs to be a justice not by feelings i hope he is put in jail and stays there along time.

  • Sims

    Electricity must be expensive in Egypt. That’s why he’s pissed off to these children that they opened the Fridgerator and turned on the Television. It must have cost him a lot of money to pay for the electricity bills.

    he should have done to him what he has done to these defensless and hunry children. BUT on a much harsher level. By being hit and punched and kicked into submission by at least 12 or more men 3 times his size and weight or strength. Then stripped namked and exposed for all to do the same.
    Children no matter who they are or what contenant they live on or the color and ethnic background is. They all have the right to be happy , healthy and be able to have food when needed. This wife should have exposed him after the first time he did this.
    or at least shot his knee caps and crippled him for life so he’d never hurt another child again. But at least now there is actual proof of him doing this. If only we could expose all the problems children suffer like this. and prevent it from ever happening again.

  • Christine

    I’m shocked to hear this is quite common in Egypt, what have these kids done to deserve such brutality. The authorities should be ashamed of themselves to allow this brutality or is this the side of Egypt that is hidden from tourists
    There is no need for violence as john Lennon says. Love is all you need
    Ps. Good to see this man has been arrested, let’s hope he receives justice and doesn’t bribe his way out of trouble

  • Saz

    The only reason they’ve done something about this man is because the video has gone viral outside of Egypt. They Egyptian authorities have to keep up good appearances because the world is watching to see what they do about this horrific oxygen theif. They’ll probably let him go and the punishment won’t be as painful as he deserves. I grew up in Iraq until I was 7, I saw parents heating a spoon on the stove and burning their children’s hands with them. I was fortunate that my mother never followed that inhuman behaviour but sadly, that’s how the world is in most poor uneducated countries. We all want to do something about it, but the truth is, there are millions of kids living in horrific fear and not enough people willing to take on a child to save. The best thing to do, is ban people from those countries having children until they learn how be good loving parents. I have a daughte, so watching those children being beaten has literally torn my heart. The first time I watched it, I had to stop 30 seconds into it because I couldn’t bare to watch any more but then I forced myself to watch it because those poor children were living it. I can honestly say that I cried for a good 20 mins if not more. I haven’t been able to watch it again because it’s so animalistic. I am so angry that 20 years on from my childhood, this still goes on.

    As an American having lived in Cairo, Egypt in 2012 – 2013 – I witnessed the beating of children quite often. It was horrific! Grown women were not treated much better. So many uneducated people with so much anger and hate. Their prophet Mohamed was the same way and was a pedophile, liar, murderer and thief. This is who Egyptian Muslim’s love and follow. Very VERY disturbed country. I’ll NEVER go back!

    • Stephanie Dessouky

      back that up with proof lady, or are you just going by what society thinks and feels. To disgrace any ones prophet or any religion is just as disgusting as a racist bigot. I am married to a sunni muslim and have studied the q’uran and don’t find any proof of what you say, no more than what’s in my bible. I have not witnessed that during the times I have lived there. But I guess like my own country and the USA there is many adults that are asses who still think think they can beat their children and abuse their spouses verbally and physically, it is a problem in society still today even in the western world.

      • meh

        The islamic ‘prophet’ wed a little girl when she was only six years old, and digitally raped her until the age of nine, when she became ‘ripe’ for his full-on sexual abuse.

        The islamic ‘prophet’ was a brutal, evil, barbaric child rapist.

    Bunch of P.C. liberal idiots here. i would be appalled by sexual abuse or any physical abuse more serious then this. But this was a typical spanking that was no different then our own American practices. we dont know what they did wrong do we? I never got beatings as a kid. but i know many who did and they learned to behave due to those beatings. Some kids need it , some dont. We are getting so soft now and raising disrespectful punks on account of it. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

      They opened the fridge’s door. That’s what he’s saying in the video ( how dare you open the fridge’s door ,,what if it gets ruined? ) ,, if you got spanked this hard during your childhood for opening the fridge’s door,Then I really feel bad for you !

        Not to mention these are fairly young children too. Beating toddlers is not accepted RAY RAY. Society has changed.

        I can tell you now, if there were still orphanages in the US, which btw, there aren’t, people like this wouldn’t be half as much worried about the law but of the community. Would have to have the law protect the perp from the community from hanging him from the nearest tallest tree or building.

      Are you serious!! A beating is a beating…maybe you should not speak on things you don’t know!! No child should be beat…period!! I was beat as a child and know there usually is not a reason for a person to just plain be abusive…but you know what…he is very afraid of me now…And I happen to NOT be Liberal…just a human being!!

        No child should be beat…period!! I was beat as a child…..AHH, yeah, sanwell. No offense, but you make no sense. And he’s afraid of you now? Okkkay? Ummm, a beating that’s not justifiable by any means is called abuse. LOOK up the meaning of abuse. Abuse is the improper usage or treatment of an entity/ person.

      This is ABUSE!!. There are ways to discipline a child and this isn’t one of them Raynard Stevens. Good thing you didn’t say this to my face, I would of giving you a good beating for commenting.

      What a colossal moron you are, Raynard. “Liberalism is a mental disorder”? Really. Thinking that beating innocent children, orphans with no parents, no less…for opening the fridge?!?!

    • Concerned American

      Having spent a lot of time in Egypt, and having studied a lot of reports on orphanages and street children, as well as the systemic powerlessness of women, I have to categorically acknowledge that you are ill-informed and WRONG. If a woman in Egypt speaks against her husband, the abuse must be constant and horrific. This woman was risking her health and life to report her husband. And the abuse depicted is not a “spanking.” Orphans are among the most marginalized of Egypt’s citizens, which means they are in need of the most care and support. Maybe you should visit Egypt to see the dynamics of abuse of children without parents. Let me know, I will be glad to show you around.

    • Ice heart

      Omg you seriously think spanking is ok??? How about spanking you up for being such a pathatic loser??? After all according to you it’s the only way to make you a better person.. Every single child need love attention and very delicate handling. There are thousand loveable ways to make a human baby a better human.

    • Devlin

      in the mix of course of the toddlers, there are also pre-schoolers, so before you come back with what you think you know, its still wrong to beat preschoolers too.

    • neil

      if you took the time and read the post you would have saw it was for opening the fridge door and turning on the tv, so u think it is ok to beat children round the hands with a lump of wood and then stick the boot in them, my god man what kind of up bringing did u have, hope u dont have kids or god help them,

      spankings are one thing. But this was abuse. Kicking a child is never right, children that small 3 swats with an open hand would be ok on the bottom. check to see if it was brutal.. Take a wooden spoon and slap the palm of your own hand as hard as you can 3 times. Now think about a child receiving that, still think its alright to do? I believe in spanking but there is a limit. I think it works well on adults too. Do unto others.

        sow a seed of faith to favor orphanage baby home and her life change for i contact the
        email address,[[email protected]] it was own by a pastor.i told the him what i am passing true.the pastor told me that
        there is nothing his god cannot do. i should have faith and believe that every things will been fine.
        the pastor told me to sow a seed of faith to his new orphanage baby home he just build to help
        the less privilege baby and god will reward me. i did as he said.he pray with me and told me that
        very soon every things will been fine.after one week, the problem i was having with my husband that almost
        break up my marriage and my business that was facing some challenge, every things stop. my husband came to
        beg me and ask me to forgive him, my business was moving well.thanks been to the god of pastor favor.
        i am using this opportunity to let you know that,if you are passing some difficult in any area of
        your life, please do not give up in life, just sow a seed of faith to pastor favor orphanage

        this orphanage baby home,god will also bless you.

        Children are our future. But for many, that future is uncertain. poverty, hunger, exploitation, abuse, natural disasters and lack of opportunity at a young age are indescribably distressing. Include the loss of love, support and comfort of family life and an orphaned child is the most tragic and poignant symbol of heartbreak imaginable.

        Our Orphanage Home is specially called for the upkeep of orphans, abandoned babies, motherless, abused and less privileged children. All over the street, and society, we find these groups of helpless people who need care, support a sense of belonging and a home they can call theirs. Touched and moved by the plight and feelings of these our fellow human beings hence our vision is to provide them their peculiar needs in the area of shelter, health care, education, food and clothing. Our clear objective /goal is set at erasing completely street, psychological complex, low esteem, negative moral vices homeless children from our society. Beloved, sincerely speaking we cannot succeed in this divine course without your financial and material support. Please help us to put a smile on the faces of these Orphans, less privilege children. Every act of love, care and compassion to these orphans will be greatly rewarded, remember God loves a cheerful giver, nothing is to small join us this quest and help to build a life today.

        Were they drunk when they hired that sick man? It’s horrible how he is abusing those kids. He had to have been abused himself during his childhood or saw daddy abusing mother for years and thought it was alright to do himself. He should be put in prison for life so he won’t be able to abuse other kids.

  • Ann Murphy

    Watching this was torturous and I hope the man is punished in the same way that he punished those children. A public flogging might teach him how it feels to be beaten by someone bigger and stronger than him.
    Unfortunately abuse like this is the norm, not the exception. I see it every day here in Luxor. Teachers do it, although now they are held accountable, if the child is brave enough to tell their parents. Children are beaten here everyday. If you were to spend some time in a house in a normal Egyptian village you would see it all around you. Children are given no boundaries in the poorer homes and communities and are left to pretty much fend for themselves. Their parents were brought up with abuse and poverty and so that is all they know. Men beat their wives, wives and husbands beat their children and on it goes down through the generations. It often reminds me of the cruelty of Dickensian England.
    People who are brought up with abuse know no other way. That’s no excuse, but I know the dynamics of abuse intimately!
    There is no accountability. No sense of responsibility. No education about abuse, boundaries or healthy personal power. Those men who were themselves abused in childhood often go on to be abusers. The women in poorer towns are so emotionally damaged that they cannot connect to their own children and so they are left to look after themselves.
    That man’s wife is a brave woman to be sure. I did wonder who had filmed it. The minister in charge of the orphanage, which is government funded, like so many others, made his pathetic excuses. They don’t care. So long as they have the power and money they don’t bother supervising these places and so no-one knows how the children are being treated.
    This is only the tip of the iceberg. There is absolutely no support for abused people, children etc. There is no education. There is not enough money.
    This man is only one of many. I listen to my husband’s stories of his own childhood education and it wasn’t much different to this man’s treatment of those poor kids.
    But the children have been moved to another orphanage. What other support do they receive? Moving them is a good thing but what now for them? What healing are they given? Giving all of our anger to the perpetrator is one thing, but we can’t forget the kids who are going to grow up with this abuse in their little hearts. I hope that they are treated well where they are now.

      On being civilized, a cat bites those who come near her kittens, in mankind the story is different, it is fines, community service, prison and deportation etc no flogging nor amputation in Egypt since the pharaoh – this is brotherhood of the peninsula
      Many of those in Misr belong to double nationals of other countries who form a burden on the system – another source of violations (they need to be attached to another country as their origin in the peninsula)
      the UN agreed that apart from the genuine countries as Misr, China and India – those who fall into Arabs, Christians and Jews are relocated to the peninsula, Europe and Australia consecutively – whereas the Americas is for the mix of them

      Yeah I saw a video on youtube and it looked like this same house in the video. But it was a woman beating a little girl. Kicking her hitting her. But she wouldn’t stop, it really broke my heart to see that. I just wished I could give that girl a hug and tell her it would be alright, and put her somewhere safe. Here is the video if it lets it post. But if not the name of vid is “Women beating small.kid very bad to see”

      Not just every Egyptian. Please open the beatings up to the world. Anyone who loves and fears for the safety of children should be allowed to get a whack at him.

        that is even better,

      • GIGfriend22

        Abuse is a abuse, if everyone abuses then you have learned nothing and are just as bad as him.

    • Rory

      You aint lying.

  • trista

    Sick child abusers everywhere need to be locked up I’m not Egyptian or from Egypt but my heart goes out to those children and children everywhere enduring abuse at the hand of those who are supposed to love and protect them

    • Heather

      It is barrack. I can’t believe that this is going on in Egypt. I hope he gets taste of his own medicine. Wish someone could go out there and get those poor poor children.

    This guy should be arrested and beaten to death allahh laywaf2ak hayawan

  • Kate Ebert Keeling

    What can be done? Is this a private orphanage? Government subsidized? I want to be a supporter of the people of Egypt. How could I help?

    • Cinder

      His wife testified against him. She was very brave!!

      • Concerned American

        YES she was! It is very dangerous for a woman to report her husband to the police, no matter where you live. But for this woman, in this neighborhood, it is amazing bravery. She is a hero for the community.

        • Cyndi Muranyi

          Very brave woman

    • Ann Murphy

      That’s the response I always have too…to help…but that is not easy. If you can find a good ngo or charity which deals directly with supporting orphanage,s that might be one way. Another way is to study them and then write about them. Education and healing is possibly the only way that stuff like this will stop…but it will take years.
      It is very difficult to know to be honest. So much needs changing…
      I live in the middle of it and I see this every day. I am managing, in a very small way, to influence how my own family here in Luxor, deal with children, so that they don’t grow up themselves to do what their parents did. No mean feat as it can take a couple of generations to change family dynamics and in this culture that might take even longer. But you have to start somewhere.
      I hope you find a way.
      Share the video too, and maybe someone around you will help you too.

    • GIGfriend22

      That’s the whole thing you do not know if it is private…… and if it is not…….. Then honestly what help could you possibly provide that the government just wont corrupt….No matter whom is in there.

  • Abir Chaaban

    This is horrible

  • yvonne bellamy

    Thoughly brutal and disgusting get this man and beat hom up then hang him from the bolloks or cut his throat now look for him quik befor he escapesllllllllll

  • George Goubran

    No wonder after this they hit their wives and children, and the beaten will hit back when they grow up!.it begs the question WHY?! for what end? btw do you think if any of these kids was sexually abused he/she is gonna dare say a word?
