This month marks 10 years since the Syrian civil war began. For most Syrians, the past 10 years have been the hardest of their lives. Since the start of the war, more than 380,000 Syrians have been killed and a staggering 13.2 million have been displaced, with 80 percent of Syrians living in poverty. In desperation, many Syrians have no choice but to flee to neighboring countries like Jordan. Syria is a dangerous region for everyone, but most especially Christians. Before the Syrian civil war, more than 20,000 Christian families lived in northeastern Syria. Christians have been in this region since the first century AD.
Over the course of the civil war, ISIS has targeted, enslaved, and brutally murdered many Christians in an attempt to take control of the region. Syria is currently the fifth most dangerous place in the world to be a Christian. Christians are fleeing Syria in hopes of a better life. Many of these Christian refugees, often families with young children, are trapped with nowhere safe to flee. To help them, the American Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East partners with churches and other NGOs in Jordan and other neighboring countries, but this is only made possible by donations. Please donate today to help these religious refugees! The American Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East does not have a center in Syria. However, American FRRME is increasingly helping a number of Syrian refugees in Jordan (currently over 10 percent of Jordan’s population). The organization and its partners assist these refugees in Jordan and other countries by providing life-saving humanitarian assistance to help them overcome horrific circumstances and obtain a better life. These resources are made possible by generous donations by faithful donors.
American FRRME is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes reconciliation, provides relief efforts, advances human rights, and seeks an end to sectarian violence in the Middle East.
