Appeal of the month
Over the course of nine long years of war, 522,000 people in Syria have died. Perhaps most heartbreaking is that approximately one million children, many of whom are Christian, have become orphans as a result of the violence and devastation.
Syrian Christians were hit hardest by the civil war. Of the 1.5 million who called the country home before the war, only a third are still in Syria. The Emeritus Patriarch of the Greek Melkite Catholic Church, Gregory III Laham, said, “We are martyrs because we are witnesses of Christ.”
The situation is dire. Few who remain in the country can afford even basic items like milk. But you can help today. Your donation will help our brothers and sisters who have suffered so greatly. Please remember that no amount is too small for those who have lost so much. God bless you.
