Nora Sobhy lives in the Egyptian village of Kafr Darwish, where the ACT Alliance and Bless, the social development agency of the Coptic Orthodox Church, carried out a relief project that benefited individuals and families adversely affected by the Libyan revolution and other events in the Arab Spring, which caused many Egyptians working abroad to lose their employment and return to their home villages. The project involved cleaning the village, reconstructing homes and improving the local quality of life. Sobhy's husband worked in Libya until the revolution there. Her home behind her was improved during the village development program..
