After over four years of civil war in Syria, almost half of the country’s population is in crisis. With over four million refugees—half of whom are children—there is desperate need
for urgent humanitarian assistance, as well as longer-term solutions such as sponsorship. As Christians, we are called to be peacemakers. We pray, seek and work for peace.
Since the outset of the crisis, PWS&D has been responding through our partners at the ACT Alliance and Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Together, we are providing basic food items, hygiene kits, shelter, clothing and essential non-food items. Partner staff on the ground are providing psychosocial, medical and educational support for children and youth living in refugee camps.
On September 12, 2015, the Government of Canada announced the establishment of the Syria Emergency Relief Fund. For all eligible donations made until December 31, 2015, the Government of Canada will contribute a matching amount towards Canada’s “Syria Emergency Relief Fund.” You can make a donation through your church offering, by mailing a cheque to the PWS&D office, calling us at 1-800-619-7301 ext. 291, or online by clicking here. Please mark your donation “Syria Relief.”
