Faces of Homelessness  

Little ones among Syrian refugees make the best of a bad situation after authorities in Turkey destroyed their tent camp. Officials brought buses to transfer 3,500 residents to official refugee camps but, knowing that violence and abuse are common there, nearly all the refugees scattered to the streets after their tents were flattened. "The people were upset because all their belongings in the tents, and the tents, were destroyed," an indigenous ministry leader said. "About 120 displaced families are living on the streets, including Muslim-background believers looking to our ministry for help, and 490 families moved in with others – three or more families packed into a broken-down slum flat." The ministry continues to provide food, mattresses, infant care items and other essentials to those in apartments and those on the street but urgently needs funding. Please consider helping indigenous workers to help refugees survive and find eternal life in Christ.

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).
