Bring Hope to Refugees in Syria and IraqBaskets of Hope - Young Refugee Boy

Today our brothers and sisters in the Middle East are suffering and trapped in an unbearable situation. Small children and innocent women and men are refugees in their own land. 

At this time of Thanksgiving, we pray that you and your loved ones can once more open your hearts to the urgent needs of these Christian refugees and offer them much needed hope.  A Basket of Hope filled with non-perishable food items, medicine and blankets will help our overwhelmed brothers and sisters in faith as they brace for a harsh winter.  The situation is a desperate one as supplies are running low.

Please give what you can and ask your family and friends if they can give as well.  Thank you.
