‘Tearfund is supporting Syrian refugees in Europe and the Middle East, because we’re committed to following Jesus where the need is greatest. But the majority of our work with refugees is taking place in the Middle East itself, and these people are often facing even harsher conditions.
‘We’ve been enabling families to find accommodation, as well as supplying food, clean water, hygiene kits and shelter materials. Over the last few years, we’ve been helping the displaced cope with winter conditions, for example by providing heaters and blankets.’
‘Unlike those that have escaped to Europe, these people are much poorer and have more limited means to support their families, which makes Tearfund’s support for refugees in Iraq, Lebanon and Jordan all the more vital.’
