Love your Neighbour | 2017 EOFY Appeal

Jesus’ mandate to love our neighbour has led us to serve people in some of the most challenging and volatile parts of our world. We feel compelled and privileged to be the hands and feet of Jesus for refugees who find themselves displaced by the conflict in Syria, which has had a devastating impact on the region.

During 2016, we provided vital aid and relief to refugees and internally displaced people in the Near East. Through local churches we were able to provide thousands of families with food packages, health, hygiene and medical assistance as well as winter packages to help them survive the harsh winter conditions. We were also able to train and financially support educators who are assisting the thousands of children no longer able to attend school as well as beginning an income generating project for women. But the need is still great.

The United Nations estimates that there are currently 6.3 million internally displaced people within Syria and over 4 million refugees that have fled to neighbouring countries. They are in desperate need of humanitarian assistance with most struggling to access the basic necessities of life. This financial year we hope to raise $ 60,000 to continue this important work and see the hope of Jesus brought to this difficult region.

We invite you to join us this EOFY as we love our neighbours in some of the poorest and most vulnerable parts of our world.

“Thank you again for your prayers and support. Sometimes it gets very tough here with all the deaths and having to say no to people because you do not have anything to give, even though you know they are cold and hungry. But then there is a surge of peace that comes over everyone and we just realise that people back home are praying.”
