Middle East

Today, over one third of the world’s 68.5 million displaced people are located in the Middle East. Ongoing conflict and new waves of destruction are leaving refugee families strained and struggling to adjust. And as pressures mount, women and children are often the ones who suffer most.

Church leaders across the region have been left overwhelmed by the immense pressures to respond to the needs of their communities, made worse by the fact that the already small and isolated church is in steady decline.

World Relief is responding to this crisis across four major areas:

The Middle Eastern Church

Wherever possible, we partner with local church and community leaders to reduce suffering and foster hope. We are committed to empowering and resourcing the church across the Middle East to be a powerful witness to the love of Christ, a voice for conflict resolution and prevention and a catalyst for community healing and development.
