From the ERD’s blog:
As has been widely reported for many months, violence and the lack of security in Syria have caused tens of thousands of civilians to flee their homes throughout the country. People are seeking refuge across the borders and in smaller towns like Tartous and Mashta El Helu with the hope that things will subside. However, the latest headlines demonstrate that the conflict continues to escalate and displaced families continue to require assistance.
With great appreciation the Fellowship of Middle East Evangelical Churches recently received support from Episcopal Relief & Development. FMEEC is a fellowship of seventeen Protestant churches of the Lutheran, Anglican and Reformed traditions that has member churches throughout the Middle East, and are very active in Syria where its member churches are located across the country. We also maintain close partnerships with Catholic, Syrian Orthodox and Greek Orthodox churches in the region.
