Sponsor-A-Refugee-Child

Violence in Syria has forced many refugees to flee to surrounding countries. At least one million have fled to Lebanon. As parents struggle to provide food, shelter, and clothing, almost three out of five Syrian refugee children are not enrolled in school. The Sponsor-A-Refugee-Child program was begun to give such school-age refugees access to Christian education that could affect their entire lives. A donation of $50 per month helps one student go to school.
