Reason #5: You!

Written by Tearfund | 18 Mar 2016

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.

‘May the Lord reward you for your kindness.’ (Ruth 1:8)

Without you, our wonderful supporters, none of this work of spreading hope would be possible. Zeina, a mother of six in Lebanon, asked us to pass this message on to you:

‘We really appreciate the food parcels that we receive every month. Thank you for supporting us with these. There are so many things we wouldn’t have bought or would cut short on if we didn’t have the parcels from you. Without your help we couldn’t pay for the kids’ medical care.

‘So I would like to say thank you to all of you who support us. If you didn’t help us with this food, we would be in a bad situation right now.’

However you are involved – whether by praying, donating, sending messages of encouragement or by simply taking the time to read this and learn more – because you care, you are a reason to have hope for Syria.

‘I believe the only thing we can be sure of is that God is in control and all things will work out for good. Our prayers will not fall on deaf ears. And there will be a light after this darkness.’ (Basma from Tearfund partner in Jordan)


If you want to continue supporting Syrians, and feel led to donate, please consider supporting our Middle East Appeal.
