Clean water brings relief to a woman who fled to a Turkish refugee camp from the atrocities of war in Syria. At the same time, many tents in Turkey's unofficial camps are flooded as winter rains have hit, the director of a ministry based in Turkey said. "They are fighting for their life – each place is like a swamp," he said. His teams are visiting and praying with refugees in their tents, including about 70 new families, some of whom fled the Syrian government offensive to retake eastern Aleppo. "They told me that they had barely stayed alive," the leader said, adding that refugees are ironically suffering shortages of clean water. "There was nothing that could be used in tents, everything was wet and in a truly deplorable condition," he said. "They were begging for children's clothes, blankets, stoves and firewood." Three out of every five people in the tents are sick, and they are in desperate need of medicines, blankets, nylon tent covers, mattresses, heaters, diapers, baby formula and food boxes, all of which can be suspended above the water in the tents, he said.

Christian Aid Mission is a 60-year-old non-profit organization that equips native missionaries around the world. We serve as a non-denominational foreign mission board that assists more than 500 ministries overseas with tens of thousands of indigenous or native missionaries in the field. These ministries are currently engaging more than 1,000 unreached people groups in more than 100 countries around the world. Our mission is to establish a witness for our Lord in every tribe and nation (Matthew 24:14) by assisting highly effective native missionaries and our focus is on reaching the unreached for Christ in areas in the world where there is no witness for Christ, where foreign missionaries are not allowed, or where Christians suffer because of poverty or persecution. Christian Aid Mission is generally considered to be the first U.S. organization to assist and promote native missionaries overseas. Since 1997, Christian Aid has been a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
