Even though the war is over and ISIS was defeated, devastation from the war is evident everywhere. Families are emotionally wounded, and many of their homes and livelihoods are damaged or destroyed. Disabled persons and widows are some of the hardest hit among the population, having no way to raise the money needed to rebuild/repair their homes or support their families. Your gift to this ministry opportunity will show the love of Christ tangibly by rebuilding the homes of physically disabled heads of households and widowed women who have lost everything.
The reign of ISIS terror has been suppressed, but the devastation on peoples lives remain. ISIS destroyed the homes and lives of anyone who they thought stood against them. Families escaped with only items that could fit in a bag or car. When the time came to remove ISIS from power, tens of thousands of additional homes were demolished or sustained massive damage in the conflicts.
Middle East culture offers very little support for disabled people and widows, and as relief efforts move away from this area, the people are left with no means to restart their lives. You can help show the love of Christ in word and deed to families receiving assistance to rebuild, along with the surrounding community.
