FOREST, Va. — World Help, an international, Christian humanitarian aid organization, is responding to the crisis in northeast Syria following the recent Turkish offensive into the country.
World Help is providing emergency supplies like clean water, food, blankets and hygiene kits to refugee camps where many are fleeing. Through World Help’s partners and programs, every $35 donation provides $189 worth of emergency aid to refugees in war-torn areas.
“Syria has known nothing but violence for the past decade, and these people need our help now more than ever before,” said Noel Brewer Yeatts, president of World Help. “They need food, clean water, blankets, and medical care, and they need these things now. As the world watches the crisis unfold, it’s critical that we take action and respond to help those most vulnerable.”
Over 1.7 million people are at risk of being impacted by the fighting, and 700,000 of those already rely on aid just to survive. And an estimated 300,000 people could easily be displaced by this invasion alone. As the death toll rises, the fears of the civilians in the area are escalating. Many of them remember fleeing from ISIS just a few years ago.
“Even though you may not be able to bring peace to these nations, you can certainly bring peace of mind to a hurting refugee by providing the things that he or she will need to survive the days to come. The time to act is now; we cannot wait any longer,” Yeatts said.
