"They were killing our neighbors. We had no choice but to flee."
Ahmed and his family sold every possession they had to buy the first plane tickets out of Iraq when the Islamic state threatened their lives. Now this family of ten is living in a 12x12 room provided by the Syrian Orthodox Church. This family was able to escape the violence because international partners prepared a space to welcome them in.
Ahmed is just one of the tens of millions displaced people globally seeking a place of safety and peace for their family, uncertain when or if life will return to normal. Behind each number there is an individual with a rich history, a web of relationships, and God-given worth. Nobody wants to be a number.
In cases like Ahmed's, it is not enough for partners to receive refugees without questioning why it is their brothers and sisters have lost their homes and loved ones. Through Global Ministries, we join our voices with those of advocates around the world to promote real solutions to challenges that have affected so many lives.
By working in long-term partnerships, Global Ministries is able to address global challenges in a way that provides both immediate relief and long-term recovery.
Make your gift an alternative gift of Peace with Justice and honor a loved one while making a difference in the lives of individuals around the world.
