The 'Fortunate' Ones  

Syrian refugees arriving in Greece are fewer in number since a European Union agreement went into effect earlier this year to stem the flow, but they are greater in need than earlier arrivals such as the ones pictured here, the co-director of an Arabic-speaking ministry based in Athens said. "The groups that have arrived lately in Greece are the most vulnerable, having lost family members," she said. "They're from a poorer background, sick, tortured or persecuted, trapped in camps where they sleep on the floor, with very poor quality food, with poor medical care, in despair believing that they would find a better place in Europe." A recent refugee had to sell her child's diapers and milk in order to pay for transit to the ministry base from a camp in Greece, telling the director, "They told me that only the 'Arabic Church' can help us. Even if you do nothing for me, I thank you because you spent time with me and you listened to me. No one has done this." The co-director said the pain of both the refugees and the team members ministering to them is increasing daily, as needs outstrip resources. "Actually, we really need your prayers for this, as the pain we face every day is really overwhelming," she said.
