Syria Emergency Relief
Of the twenty Presbyterian congregations in Syria, all have been affected by the hardship of war. The National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon, through its Refugee Assistance Program, is locating and providing support for the displaced congregants, both families and pastors. Grants to the families are helping with food, lodging, education and more. The program provides training for local caregivers as well as for leaders in the local congregations who will implement the program and provide resources for congregations to assist their neighbors in Christ’s name.
Two of the larger churches in Homs and Aleppo have been severely damaged, and facilities are being rented in hotels or apartment buildings to provide worship space. The Outreach Foundation invites you to join in efforts to come alongside our Syrian brothers and sisters to help them in this time of need. The funds that The Outreach Foundation has already sent – over $300,000 – are strengthening the hand of our partners and encouraging them as they serve hurting families in Jesus’ name.
Minimum Goal for 2016
$50,000 for support for displaced congregants
