The brutal war in Syria between the Rebels and the Assad government and the Islamic State’s violence towards everyone has created a tremendous refugee crisis. There are now 6.6 million refugees across the Middle East. The overwhelming number (nearly 65%) of these refugees are women and children. They fled bombed out cities, violence from their government and brutality from a terrorist army. They gave up their homes and now live in overpopulated tent cities. We are providing critical relief to Christian, Yazidis and Moderate Muslim refugees.

The population density rivals New York City, London and other major metropolitan areas. There is limited electricity. During the summer, the heat becomes overwhelming with temperatures in the high 90’s to the low 100’s. In the winter, the temperatures are in the low 40’s and below. The tents these families live in have no insulation. When it rains, the tents leak like a sieve.
