In the middle of the biggest humanitarian crisis of our time stands the Church.
Since the Syrian conflict began in 2011 more than 500,000 people have perished and over 12 million people have been displaced. Countless Syrian families have lost their homes and livelihoods, they have experienced the death or disappearance of a friend or relative, and now face a daily struggle to survive, dependant on the charity of others to meet even their most basic needs.
In their grief and despair, thousands of these Syrian families have turned to the Church for help.
Tearfund Ireland works with partners LSESD in Lebanon to support Syrians affected by the long-running Syrian conflict. Through a network of churches – Anglicans, Baptists, Presbyterians, Orthodox and other Christian communities – we are caring for war-affected Christian and Muslim households.
God is doing an incredible work through His Church in the Middle East. As churches express their faith through love – welcoming strangers, feeding the hungry, caring for the sick, protecting and educating children and comforting the grief stricken – they are witnessing lives transformed in remarkable ways. There is an amazing story taking place which you’ll never hear on the news.
Dr Abboud is an international speaker and regularly engages with Church and ministry leaders on how the Church can effectively live the gospel within their community.
