By any measure, it’s been a difficult year in the Middle East, with hundreds of thousands of people facing extraordinary challenges. War, persecution, displacement and poverty have all taken a toll. But CNEWA has accompanied our brothers and sisters on this difficult journey, as they have fought to maintain their dignity, their hope, and their faith.

We’ve been closely involved in many projects which have provided both humanitarian and spiritual support. Our regional directors have just sent us updates that help paint a clearer picture of what that has entailed in the last year.

In Iraq, thousands of displaced Christians have remained resilient even as they live in containers and makeshift housing. CNEWA has stepped forward to provide housing, healthcare — and hope. Read more.

In Lebanon, the Lebanese people have absorbed refugees from Iraq and Syria, many fleeing for their lives and looking for a safe haven. CNEWA has been there with counseling, emergency services and support for church institutions and schools. Read more.

And in Syria, with half the population driven from their homes and the economy in ruins, CNEWA has provided aid to support displaced families, provide health care and uplift Christians through church and catechetical work. Read more.

All these projects and more help fulfill CNEWA’s mission to “build up the church, affirm human dignity, alleviate poverty, encourage dialogue — and inspire hope.”
