Refugees Face the Perils of Winter

Vernon Brewer

Emergency preparations for the winter months ahead are already underway by our humanitarian teams in Jordan and Iraq. We’re bracing for what could be one of the greatest losses of life since the refugee crisis began . . .

Please take a moment right now to watch this urgent message from the field:

Watch Winter is Coming – Iraqi & Syrian Refugee Crisis from World Help on Vimeo.

I’ve found that most people are simply unaware that winter in the Middle East is extremely harsh. Over the past couple of years alone, the region has experienced below-freezing temperatures, dangerous winds, and multiple ice and snow storms.

For the millions of refugees living under plastic tents, with no access to warm winter clothing, the change of seasons isn’t just a nuisance, it’s a death sentence.

Young children and the elderly are especially susceptible to perishing from exposure. Damp, cold conditions are an open invitation for contamination and disease. Provisions are desperately needed by these families in order to survive the perilous months ahead.

Please consider giving a gift today to help meet the winter needs of these refugees. Your contribution will provide winter clothing, heaters, warm bedding, food, clean water, and medicine to those in need.

I also want to provide you with a resource that I’m urging every single World Help supporter to read. It’s a booklet that I wrote with detailed, firsthand accounts of refugees and persecuted believers who have fled from ISIS and have nothing to call their own. The world needs to hear these stories. And as Christ followers, we need to understand the magnitude of what our brothers and sisters are enduring every single day. You can order your own copy of my booklet online, here.

Thank you for your continued support, and please . . . please continue to pray for the Middle East.
