REFUGEE CRISIS: THE NAZARENE CHURCH RESPONDS
Imagine having to run from your country of birth, on foot, because it is no longer safe to stay there. Imagine having to flee with little more than memories of violence and loss. Millions of individuals, each with a story of loss, are on a desperate journey to seek safety and an opportunity to live with dignity. Many of them have arrived in foreign countries where they are forced to live in the margins of society. They are in need of food, clothes, and shelter. Children are in need of education. Adults are in need of work in order to provide for their families.
In the midst of the crisis, the Church of the Nazarene has been ministering to refugee families from who are desperate to find safety and stability.
In the Balkans, the church is providing basic needs for children and families who are refugees as they journey toward safety. In Jordan and Lebanon, the church is helping refugee families resettle, providing for needs such as food and shelter, and providing education and safety for children. In Northern Europe, the church is helping families and individuals to resettle and adapt to a new home.
Together, we are the church. Together, we can make a difference.
