I Am Your Voice

You’ve probably seen news coverage of the terrorist group, Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) beheading Christians in Iraq. These are only some of the atrocious crimes this group is committing against Iraqi citizens, and also Syrians. As refugees flee these two countries to save their families, Food for the Hungry (FH) is providing food and other relief support – and we need YOUR help! With partners like you joining the I Am Your Voice campaign, together we are getting aid to people living through this Middle East crisis nightmare.

The I Am Your Voice campaign is sending out a call of help for those who cannot ask for it. This FH campaign is focused specifically on helping refugees fleeing the fighting in Iraq and Syria. FH is partnering with Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development (LSESD) which works with the local church in the Middle East to help those fleeing the ISIS onslaught to find safety and shelter.

Here is a report from the field…

“And as ISIS controls further territory in Iraq, more than 1,500 Iraqi Christian families have sought  refuge in Lebanon, and we are expecting more Iraqis to arrive.”

LSESD has helped and is preparing to help more Iraqi Christian families along with refugees fleeing the fighting. They report, “Our Relief and Develop program is supporting between 6,000 to 7,000 vulnerable Syrian families in Lebanon and in Syria…We have been called to provide for Christian Iraqi refugees in Lebanon, and we expect to have a growth in Iraqi refugees in the coming months.” Additionally LSESD is helping Christians and churches in northern Iraq who are on the front line of suffering.

But they need your help to provide for these Iraqi Christians. They currently don’t have enough funds to provide food, shelter, hygiene kits, child protection and more to these desperate families. Will you help?

By providing a gift of $25, $50 or $125 — you’ll be saving the lives of your Iraqi brothers and sisters in Christ as they flee a religious-persecuted death — and Syrian families fleeing war.  By joining the I Am Your Voice campaign and giving generously today you are joining the suffering church and “allowing the church to fulfill its ministry” of hope in this desperate hour.
