Working with partners inside the country of Syria, and in surrounding countries, the United Church of Christ is providing emergency assistance to the million of refugees who are trying to flee the conflict there.
Through One Great Hour of Sharing and through specially designated gifts to this critical situation, food, water, blankets, hygienic items, essential medicines, medical supplies and equipment have been and will continue to be provided, just as they are in many other disasters. In addition, psychological, emotional, spiritual, and social support is being given, as are clothes, other non-food items, and support aimed at preparing for the winter cold season, just ahead.
How You Can Help
1. Prayers are always needed. Please share this information with others, and ask your church, group or family to pray for all people finding themselves having to flee their homes for safety.
2. Make a Gift
through the national setting of the UCC. 100% of gifts designated to "Syria Humanitarian Crisis" will directly go to help Syrian refugees and those who are internally displaced in the Middle East and in Europe.
