The UN estimates that nearly 1 out of 3 Syrians have been displaced both inside and outside of the country since the beginning of the civil war. That would be like EVERY single person inALL of the highlighted states above being displaced.
Extremists have been specifically targeting Christian dominated areas, killing as many as 45 Christians in a single attack. That would be like the states in the “Bible Belt”, being specifically targeted by extremists.
As a result of the violence, 25% of Christians have had to flee the country, in the last year alone. That would be like 37 million American Christians being forced to flee the USA.
It’s amazing to think about what it would be like if all of this was happening in the USA. Yet, this is the reality that our Syrian brothers and sisters have been facing for the past several years.
Galatians 6:9 says “Let us not grow weary of doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
Open Doors is helping displaced Christians in places like Syria, Iraq and The Central African Republic, through Christian community restoration projects like housing, food and even rebuilding churches that have been attacked.
Would you prayerfully consider giving to our Christian community restoration projects, helping displaced Christians in Syria and other war-torn countries? Thank you for standing with our persecuted brothers and sisters!
