Winters in Turkey are cold and miserable for Syrian refugees who struggle to find jobs to support their families. Some refugees arrive in Turkey with absolutely nothing but the clothes on their backs. They find themselves crowded in tiny, damp apartments with no good way to escape the bone-chilling temperatures. Many cannot afford fuel or coal for heating.
To help make winters a bit more bearable, CAM is providing hundreds of warm blankets, mattresses, and stoves for needy refugees, especially widows. This saves them from sleeping on cold concrete floors and shields them from the damp, chilly air. As these items bring warmth to refugees, many also experience the warmth of God’s love through these kind gifts from believers.
