Syrian refugee children

Shelter from the Storm

Children at a refugee center in Aqaba, Jordan who have fled their homes amid civil war in Syria face a long winter, but a local ministry is helping to meet critical needs with food and blankets. The needs are vast; three years of war have displaced an estimated 6.5 million Syrians internally, while at least 3 million others have fled the country. Working through local churches and purchasing shelter, food, bedding and medicines from area sources, an indigenous ministry assisted by Christian Aid Mission brings relief to children who have lost their once-stable home lives. The ministry also provides Christian literature and children´s Bibles, as well as Bibles for adults.
