Supporting Middle Eastern Refugees

The Daily Prism will return to the third way technologies tomorrow.  But we take this break to showcase compassionate hearts on the front line of the mass migration of peoples fleeing Middle East terror and war.

One such group is the Christian organization, Samaritan's Purse.   From their website:

Over 3.2 million Iraqis have been displaced since January 2014—the majority were forced to flee in the wake of ISIS advances. Many escaped with little but the clothes on their backs. As ISIS fighters remain in control of large swaths of their country, families are seeking refuge in tent camps and unfinished buildings, relying on the generosity and hospitality of local Christian hosts and international support.

Samaritan’s Purse staff in northern Iraq have been helping these suffering families for over a year by supplying food, shelter, clean water, winter clothes, and more. 

The organization addresses the needs of

  • Children
  • Clean water, sanitation and hygiene
  • Preparing for winter
  • Restoring livelihoods
