As the Syrian refugee crisis rages in Europe and the Middle East, the EPC is recommending Samaritan’s Purse for those churches and individuals who wish to contribute.
The organization headed by Franklin Graham has deployed a multinational team of personnel to Hungary, Serbia, and other affected countries to meet the immediate needs of displaced people. Samaritan’s Purse is supporting trusted, local Christian partners with the aim of facilitating as many intersections between them and refugees as possible—offering physical relief and gospel witness.
Since anti-government demonstrations began in Syria in 2011, more than 4 million people have fled the country—almost 20 percent of the pre-war population. According to the U.N., more than half of all Syrian refugees are under the age of 18. Most have been out of school for months, if not years.
