Help Feed the Hungry in Lebanon

Since December 2015, the emergency feeding center, the Table of Saint John the Merciful, has been a place of refuge for all who cannot afford a hot meal each day. Many refugees from Syria, and also needy Lebanese, street children and children who are not fed properly at home, come to the center. Every day approximately 600 people are given a free hot meal.

With your support, we can keep this vital program running.  Any amount will make a tremendous difference in the lives of those who have so little.  Thank you and God bless youi.

Keep Christianity Alive in Iraq

"Truly, these coming months may well decide the fate of Christianity in Iraq; whether it surviives and is given a chance for rebirth; or whether ir perishes...Still, we are a people of hope, of undying faith in God's help...I am able to speak in these terms because of the unfailing support from Christians in the West that have helped Iraqi Christians going, despite all the odds."

These words of Archbishop Bashar Warda of Erbil, Iraq are a call to action for Christians around the world.

Can we count on your help?  Your donation will ensure that no child will go hungry and that all will have a safe place to lay their heads at night.  May God bless you for your support.
