Middle East Crisis
As conflict across the region worsens, help us scale up our response to meet the critical needs of children who have been deeply affected by conflict.
Extended and complex armed conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Yemen have resulted in a humanitarian crisis almost beyond comprehension that has affected multiple surrounding nations and resulted in the largest displacement of people since World War II.
People are internally displaced in Syria.
People are internally displaced in Iraq.
People in Yemen are in need of food support.

Even a small gift will go a long way for those in need.
Partners teams are responding to the massive displacement of civilians as a result of conflict in the region. You can reach these people, providing life-saving supplies when they need it most.

Your Impact So Far
In places where there is great fear, you’re there sowing love.
In 2016, you took a big step with us to begin providing assistance in war-torn regions of the Middle East. Since then your generosity has made a huge impact. You’ve brought practical help to thousands of displaced and trapped families who have almost no other outside assistance. But most importantly, your act of love has reminded them they haven’t been forgotten. Here's a snapshot of your impact in 2018.
When Afrin was attacked in April and thousands fled escalating violence near Aleppo in July, you were there to meet 48,250 of the displaced with a nourishing hot meal.
Thanks to you, local partners delivered food parcels containing items like flour, rice, sugar and cooking oil to 17,334 desperate people across conflict areas in Syria, Yemen and Iraq.
One of the challenges facing families who fled attacks on the city of Afrin in Syria was the bitter cold, but you responded by providing sleeping bags to keep them warm at night.
To help meet the health care needs of communities fleeing conflict in Syria, a mobile hospitainer was outfitted, complete with x-ray and operating room capabilities, to serve a target population of 15,000 people.
You played a crucial role in mending the hearts of children left deeply scarred by ISIS occupation through a 3-month trauma-recovery program for Yazidi children in Iraq.
When ISIS destroyed and land mined a school near Raqqa in Syria, you made sure classrooms didn't stay empty, giving 924 children the chance to go to school again.
Where You're Helping
Syria, Iraq and Yemen.
At the heart of our work has always been a desire to go to the hard to reach places where few organizations are working. While focusing on providing immediate help to children suffering as a result of war and oppression, our vision is also to invest long-term in developing solutions to support these communities. By starting development projects that strengthen families and rebuild infrastructure to meet children’s primary needs like healthcare and education, you invest in a future for these children where they have the opportunity to live free, full lives. It’s for this reason that, together with you, we go to these places to show God’s love.
We cannot do this without your help.
