Home is…a place where everyone can flourish

We all long for home. Somewhere we can belong, feel safe and grow.

Yet across the Middle East, homes have been shattered by years of conflict. Millions of people are having to raise their families in cramped conditions in refugee camps, lacking the basic essentials. Life is a struggle to survive.

But you can help. Together as the church, we can make a difference today.

You can empower people
to overcome poverty and flourish.

Home is…  a future for your children

Tamam used to live a quiet and comfortable life in Northern Syria, with her loving husband and children.

But when the conflict came to her village, everything began to fall apart. ISIS occupied the area, and soon life became more restricted. There was no electricity or running water, the crops and animals died, and food became scarce.

Tamam’s husband was tragically killed, forcing Tamam to flee with her children. They joined around 1 million Syrians escaping the war to live in Lebanon.

Now they live in a makeshift settlement in the middle of a slum.

Tamam and her children.

Home is… 
a place for hope to grow

At Tearfund, we know that poverty isn’t part of God’s plan. People are suffering and this cannot be ignored. God calls us to act, so we go to some of the world’s most challenging countries and stay there for as long as we’re needed. We won’t give up on people like Tamam.

Our aim is to see lives restored to their full God-given potential. We work through the local church to empower and equip people to lift themselves out of poverty.

We’ve been doing it for 50 years – seeing amazing success and lives completely transformed.

2.5 million people received life-changing support in the last year alone.

But we can’t do it without you

Please join us today – together, we can help ensure that families living in poverty have homes where they can belong, feel safe and grow. Thank you.
