Tuesday 15 March marks five years since the start of Syria’s brutal war. Let’s join together this week to counter despair and bring back some much-needed hope for Syria.
‘Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.’ (1 Corinthians 13:7)
‘There were two big bombs one day. A lot of houses and shops were destroyed. The next day, I went there and saw people cleaning, repairing their shops and houses. In another place there was a bomb, all the glass of the café windows was broken, but the next day it was fixed up and the cafés were open again!’ This was reported by one of our partners in Aleppo.
Grateful for small things, resourceful, ready to get back up and keep going – these are some of the qualities we see in so many of the Syrians we work with.
