Christmas for Syria

You have heard the news—Syrian refugees are overwhelming European borders, desperately seeking asylum from the civil war at home. Almost 430,000 have applied for asylum in Europe already. Earlier this month, more than 7,400 refugees entered Hungary on a single day. European governments are scrambling to find a solution to the crisis.

But for every Syrian refugee heading for Europe, nine remain closer to home. Jordan has received 630,000; Lebanon 1,114,000; and Turkey almost 2,000,000. Moreover, 6,500,000 Syrians are displaced within Syria.

The civil war, which began in March 2011, has wreaked havoc on families and communities. Hometowns are war zones. Infrastructure is broken down. Violence and confusion are everyday realities.

Praise God that He has put Christians in place to respond to the crisis. ANM’s partners in the region are caring for refugees and displaced persons, especially children. They provide basic necessities like blankets, food, and hygiene supplies, and they share the Gospel with these majority-Muslim victims.

ANM has sent 18 cargo containers full of supplies to our partners in this region. We want to get another one there in time for Christmas. Check the collection list below to see what you can contribute. Or you can give funds to purchase items or help with shipping. With your help we can send a life-changing Christmas gift to Syrian refugees.

We hear the news every day. This is our chance to respond. We must receive all donations by Friday, October 23.

Deliver or mail items to our warehouse at 10460 Critzers Shop Rd. Afton, VA 22920.

We want to send quality items to our partners, so please make sure all donations are new or in very good condition.
