About the project
Individuals and families in the Middle East are facing extreme difficulties due to a number of violent conflicts. Regional conflicts have forced families to flee. The numbers of internally displaced people and refugees have reached historic levels and created a crisis. There are very few resources to meet the overwhelming needs.
Nazarene churches in the Middle East are responding to the needs of 10,000 people living as refugees or internally displaced persons. Nazarene churches are providing families and individuals with food packages, hygiene kits, health care, blankets, and foam mattresses. Church members are also reaching out to families, visiting their homes, praying for them, providing special meals, and engaging them in fellowship activities.
As with any crisis, serving children—who are among the most vulnerable—is a priority. Nazarene churches are creating English clubs, after-school programs, sports initiatives, and Sunday school activities for children directly affected by the crisis. Four formal, accredited schools are educating children who have been displaced. Two additional informal schools have been established to meet the educational needs of refugee children who cannot attend a formal school.
Through your support, you will deliver a tangible expression of love and a message of redemption and hope to people who are threatened, scared, and in desperate need.
