Work on the restoration of the historic church has begun, which had been bombed in 1967, while the decision that was taken thirty years ago for its concession and sale of the plot on which it is located will be reconsidered.
As stated by the Greek Community of Cairo, September 2, 2020, was a historic day when work on plot cleaning and fencing has begun where the historic Church of St. George in Suez is located. The church, believed to have been built in 1873, was partially destroyed by bombing during the 1967 war and has been turned into a rubbish dump in recent years.
As reported by vema.com.au., the necessary action has been taken by the Greek Community of Cairo, with which the Greek Community of Suez merged in 1979, so that the church can be restored and preserved. In particular, the courtyard of the church was completely cleaned last Wednesday, guards were placed and fencing works will follow. At the same time, as announced by the President of the Greek Community of Cairo, Christos Kavalis, the decision taken in 1990 will be reviewed, which provided for the concession of the church and the sale of the plot on which it is located.
