Syrian refugees in Turkey

Fear melts into smiles

The fear on the faces of two refugee children peering through the door melted into smiles as our contacts delivered a food parcel. These children in Turkey told our contacts that their mother went to the market to buy food. “We don’t have money, so that’s why my mother goes to buy food in the evening because it’s cheaper, even though the fruit and vegetables . . . are rotten,” they explained.

The children’s father was killed in conflict before they fled from their demolished home in Syria. Their mother cleans houses to earn a living, but COVID-19 restrictions kept her from working the past eight months.

Our contacts prayed with these children and gave them a food parcel. We pray this care will point them to the One who is “a father of the fatherless and a judge of the widows.”
