The Nine Project
Hundreds of families from Iraq and Syria have been displaced by violence, leaving them to exist in desert camps in Kurdistan (northern Iraq). While these camps are safer than their homes, many live in inhumane conditions, simply trying to survive the 120 degree desert heat with the little they could carry.
There are 500 families in Kurdistan in need of immediate help. You can help provide relief by sending a toiletry pack today for $9.
World Compassion Terry Law Ministries is not a part of nor affiliated with Compassion International. Your gift will be used for these projects and many other outreaches of World Compassion Terry Law Ministries.
There are large aid organizations providing basic food and shelter items, but most families still lack essential daily items that make living in these conditions realistic or sustainable.
World Compassion is providing toiletry packs and other relief packs to refugee families to help fill in the gaps of the aid they receive. Each pack helps meet the immediate needs of a family, and are supplemented by monthly distributions of food and necessities from World Compassion through local churches on the ground. These items bring hope and equip local pastors to reach out to refugees in their time of need.
The devastation to human life is incalculable, and has created the worst refugee crisis in modern history. In Syria alone there has been over 2.5 million people displaced outside their country, and 6.5 million internally. 250,000 refugees from Syria and 500,000 from Iraq have fled to the federal region of Kurdistan for safe haven leaving approximately 750,000 refugees in Kurdistan from Syria and Iraq needing immediate help.
