Will you provide hope to Syrian families this Advent?
Over eight years of civil war in Syria has devastated so many lives. Hundreds of thousands have died, millions more have been made homeless. Your support this Advent could give families like Majid’s a safe place to call home.
Provide hope and comfort to Syrian families
The conflict in Syria forced Majid and his family to flee their hometown in fear of their lives. They spent days walking through the desert, without food or water.
Dana, Majid’s wife, told us “we only feared that a missile might fall on our heads”.
They eventually reached a town far enough away from the fighting. But millions of other Syrian families have also been forced to flee the violence, so the demand for housing is high and so is the price of rent.
After some time, Majid and his family found shelter - a single room in a disused shop. Majid took on jobs wherever he could, but he still struggled to earn enough to pay the rent. Sometimes they would go without food to save money for rent.
No one should have to choose between feeding their family and paying the rent.
Our local experts were able to support Majid’s family with the rent - to keep a roof over their heads this Christmas after everything they have been through. By donating this Advent, you can provide comfort and hope to families like Majid’s - whose lives have been devastated by the Syria Crisis.
Our local experts are on the ground in Syria and in neighbouring countries, providing vital emergency aid but we can only do this with your support. You can support these families with the essentials - shelter, water or counselling for children who have been traumatised by the violence.
