Send hope this Christmas

By Dan Etheridge

Half of the 3.2 million Syrian refugees are under 17. These children have fled their homes, towns, churches and schools due to fighting, intimidation and fear.

They’ve lost everything they own. And many are at risk of losing out further as in fleeing they can no longer go to school. Many have missed months, if not years of education, putting their chances of reaching their full potential at risk. Faiez, a Christian Dad affected by the crisis in the Middle East, is worried. He asks ‘What is the future for my children?’

Could you help? Could you restore hope?

  • Just £13 can provide a month’s education for one child from a family that has had to flee because of persecution.

Your prayers and gifts can help us support young people like Faiez’s children, helping them continue their education, ensuring they have the chance of a brighter future.
