Syria is still in crisis this Christmas

Help the church in Syria to provide vital aid for vulnerable families

The crisis in Syria isn’t over yet. The most vulnerable people have been left behind; the displaced, the elderly, those who need medical care. Open Doors local church partners are providing vital aid such as food and medicines to 12,000 families each month, alongside long-term projects.

Your support and prayers are helping the church in Syria to shine as a light in the darkness. They need the support and prayers of their global church family to keep going.

“God has put the body together… so that… its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it.” – 1 Corinthians 12:24-26

Please pray and give a gift today via OpenDoors.
