RUPS' MISSION 

 ------------------------
We have established our mediation organization to serve the many subcultures in the refugee community of Cairo, Egypt. We seek to help refugees rebuild their lives and avoid negative behavior. We seek to build bridges between different communities. We do not give legal advice; rather we aim to help others talk about and solve their problems. We seek to stop misunderstandings between any two persons or communities, promote healthy relationships, and provide conflict transformation education in our communities. 
 
Donations are always needed to support our ongoing work: conflict resolution courses, nonviolence courses, and mediation services.
