THE STORY:

You may have heard about refugees in the news lately.

The war in Syria just passed its 6th anniversary on March 15th, with 5 million living as refugees and 6.6 million living as displaced within their own country. Over half of all those fleeing from violence are children.

As easy as it might be to close our borders in fear, or neglect to understand that every minute, another 24 people are displaced, it is most compelling to watch the videos. To see the faces of these children who are shivering, of the mothers who are helpless, of the fathers who are crying because they cannot offer any assurances to their families--maybe then we will start to understand. These are people. And they have lost everything. 

Refugees and those displaced are not only from Syria, but also Yemen, Somalia, South Sudan, Afghanistan. Recently, Mosul in Iraq has been targeted by ISIS and is in need of help. Samaritan's purse has been providing much needed medical services--creating hospitals, operating rooms, calling in surgeons, nurses, and staff--as well as distributing food, clothing, and medicine to tens of thousands of adults and children. Wherever there is most need, the money will go.
