Project Details


  • Project Description:

    The war against ISIS emotionally damaged families and physically damaged their livelihoods and tens of thousands of homes. The war is over and ISIS was defeated but results of the conflict are evident everywhere and the devastation on people’s lives remain.

    ISIS destroyed anyone who they thought stood against them. Families escaped with only items that could fit in a bag or car. Families are emotionally damaged, and many of their homes and livelihoods are damaged or destroyed. Disabled persons and widowed women are some of the most vulnerable, having no way to raise the money needed to rebuild or repair their homes or to support their families.

    Your gift to this project will rebuild the homes of physically disabled heads of households and widowed women who have lost everything. 

    "He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor." 1 Samuel 2:8  

    "The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble." Psalm 9:9

  • Cultural Information:

    The Middle East offered very little support for disabled peoples and widowed women even before ISIS came onto the scene, and as relief efforts move away from this area, the people are left with no means to restart their lives. You can help show the love of Christ in word and deed to families benefitting from this project along with the surrounding community.
