Syrian Christian refugees
Every night, Ramola prays for peace in her country, hoping that everything “goes back to normal.” With that in mind, she tells the toddlers of the house about the life they once had, about the happy life they once shared in Syria, but she won’t hide the truth as to why they had to flee.
They too are living in housing subsidized by Aid to the Church in Need, paying roughly $300 a month in rent for a two-room home, which includes a kitchen, accommodating four people. Mountanha emphasized how much different the support from Aid to the Church in Need and the local Greek Melkite church makes. “Without it, we would be crying tears of blood,” she said.
