Aid Kits: Giving God’s Word to Desperate Refugees

Since 2011, surrounding nations in the Middle East have absorbed millions of refugees, but they are now busting at the seams. The crisis is overflowing far beyond what anyone could have imagined. I desperately ask for your help today to send life-saving aid to our brothers and sisters in need.

Imagine: Young families sleeping in clusters by the roadside, vulnerable teenagers navigating alone by night through treacherous conditions, coughing children suffering from infectious diseases, smuggled individuals taken advantage of by strangers. They are exhausted, traumatized, and achingly hungry.

For the estimated 15 million people in Iraq and Syria who have been forced to flee their homes due to civil war and the mind-numbing brutality of ISIS, this is not just a dream. This is reality.

The United Nations is calling this the worst refugee crisis since World War II.

Every day, thousands are embarking on a dangerous journey to Europe across hazardous land or in flimsy, plastic boats with no guarantee they or their children will arrive safely.

What degree of desperation would it take to even consider this incredibly hazardous undertaking . . . to choose the possibility of death over remaining under the tyranny of ISIS?

World Help is strategically positioned on the Greece-Macedonia border to help with the influx of refugees with aid kits containing critical, life-saving supplies such as water, food, hygiene items, medicine, diapers, baby formula, rain gear, and blankets. And most importantly, a copy of the Arabic New Testament—providing the opportunity for the Word of God to speak to the hearts of these refugees during their darkest hours.

We are able to provide these aid kits for the men, women, and children who are passing through the checkpoint—thousands of refugees every single day.

As conflict continues to escalate in the Middle East and winter rapidly approaches; dropping temperatures have already begun to affect refugees—predicting the worst is yet to come. It’s vital we respond immediately. We are in a race against the clock to reach a vast population of people who are barely clinging to a shred of hope . . . and we can be that hope!

Today, we have the opportunity to be the hands, feet, and heart of Jesus to the scared, broken, and hopeless. Doing nothing is not an option!

The World Help relief team is working around the clock to share comfort and hope, but we desperately need your help to continue these operations. Refugees are arriving by the thousands with literally only the clothes on their backs. We must act . . . And we must do it now!
