Egypt, Sister Sara, in the footsteps of Sister Emmanuelle

One year after the death of the nun, Sister Sara has written "Sister Emmanuelle my friend, my mother » with Sofia Stril-Rever, the niece of the deceased.

She's worked eighteen years at the side of one of the French favorite personalities, and has continued her action with scavengers in Cairo since 1993.
Sister Sara, the Coptic Orthodox nun, joined Sister Emmanuelle in Cairo in 1975. With Sister Emmanuelle, they opened schools, got in charge of the girls education and sought funds for the families no to pay the tuition of their children any longer.

Denis Dailleux followed Sister Sara and Sofia Stril-Rever who wanted to come back in Egypt on the footsteps of her aunt.
