A harrowing story of an Egyptian father and daughter, Coptic Christian converts, that fled to Cyprus in fear of their lives. Conversions from Islam to Christianity are not officially recognized in Egypt. They long for a permanent, safe home and a life of peace. Coptic Christians have been persecuted throughout history and are often the target of intolerance and sectarian violence. Copts in Egypt are around 10% of the population- the largest religious minority.
