Sister Annie - An Ordinary Woman Doing Extraordinary Things in Syria

The terror continues in the Middle East, as does the uncertainty that each family carries with them. Will we ever have a real home again? When can my children go back to school, and will they be safe? Will we have enough food to survive?

Sister Annie Demerjian works with those in need in Aleppo, Syria.  She sees firsthand the struggles and challenges of the faithful.  It is painful to see people without food and water. In them, Jesus is hungry and thirsty.  What gives me joy is when I can help them and see the relief and happiness on their faces.”

Your gift today will provide clothes and shoes to orphans; enable the building of schools so that children can return to their education; provide food, shelter and medicine, and so much more.  Thank you for whatever you can give today.  May God bless you.
