Project Details

  • Project Description:

    As the war in Syria continues, the needs of Syrian refugees become more urgent. Currently, the most significant felt-need of Syrian families is an education for their children. This is an unpresedented opportunity to reach families with the gospel.

    Hundreds of families have been forced to leave their homes and country because of the massive destruction from the civil war in Syria. There are no schools for refugee children to attend, and parents fear that their children will have no future without an education. Your gift will support the education of 400 Syrian refugee children in several tent schools, and share the love of Christ daily. This is also an opportunity to provide school supplies, materials, meals, building rent and utilities, transportation, and salaries for teachers and bus drivers.Along with education, students receive seasonal clothing and families benefit from food aid and winter aid when extra blankets and heat are needed.

    Syrian students and their families are offered health screenings and help in covering the cost of medications as well as dental and optometry aid. Volunteers can help train teachers and work with medical screening and there is a great need for counselors for children and their families. Most of these children are suffering from degrees of PTSD and need to talk to a native-Arabic speaker trained in these issues.

    This ministry opportunity protects childhood, fights against ignorance, and provides children with basic life skills needed not only for their futures but also to rebuild Syria. The education approach helps meet the physical and the spiritual needs of entire refugee families during this unprecedented window of spiritual openness.
