Horrific Child Abuse in Egypt Orphanage Uncovered

August 3, 2014

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.
