Church Resources - Refugee Crisis in Europe
Our staff and local partners are meeting urgent needs in Hungary and other affected European countries.
Hundreds of thousands of refugees desperate to start new lives in the West have rapidly streamed through Europe this year, overwhelming certain nations along their path. It is the largest crisis of its kind in the region since the Second World War.
Samaritan’s Purse has a multinational team of personnel on the ground in Serbia, Croatia, Macedonia, and Greece to meet the immediate needs of displaced people. We are supporting trusted, local Christian partners in several countries with the aim of facilitating as many intersections between them and refugees as possible—offering a variety of physical relief and the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Even as we are doing this important work, Samaritan’s Purse is helping refugees who are still in the Middle East. Thanks to gifts from generous Canadians like you, we are providing physical and spiritual help to thousands of Syrians and Iraqis who have fled for their lives to Kurdistan, a relatively safe area in northern Iraq. Your donations are enabling us to supply shelter materials, food, vocations supplies, household supplies and more to people who often have nothing when they arrive. Refugees continue to arrive in Kurdistan, so your help is still needed.
Ways you can help
Please pray for peace in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, for those suffering as they’re caught in the middle of a brutal conflict, and that God will be glorified as we help meet the needs of the hurting.
Your gift toward our projects in the Middle East will extend a loving, helping hand to those living in the midst of strife. Help families in this part of the world who have been displaced as a result of violent conflict and religious persecution receive the physical and spiritual aid they so desperately need to cope with the resulting poverty and trauma.
