Raising money to support refugees from the conflict in Syria – by meeting both physical and spiritual needs

During Lent we are raising money to help desperately needy refugees from the ongoing conflict in Syria.  Through a project linked to our mission partners, Anna and Jonathan Holmberg, we are supporting the purchase of fruit and vegetables which would otherwise be unavailable to refugees.  These will significantly improve their diet and their overall health.

Secondly, through the Bible Society, we are supporting the purchase and distribution of Bibles in Arabic.  Many refugees have asked for Bibles and supplies are running low.

The final sum raised was £6,820, which was split equally between the 2 projects.
