What you can do:
Pray for those who are affected by violence and are vulnerable, that they may be granted peace and healing.
Your gifts are needed now to help with immediate relief. Gifts designated for the Middle East and Europe Refugee Crisis will be used in full (100 percent) to assist those directly impacted.
