HELP FAMILIES FLEEING THE CONFLICT-TORN MIDDLE EAST

As conflict worsens in the Middle East, millions of displaced families need our support.

Together with our Caritas partners, Catholic Relief Services is supporting hundreds of thousands of families who have been displaced or forced to flee their homes because of conflicts, civil strife and economic conditions in the Middle East and other regions.

To respond to the recent influx of Middle East refugees and economic migrants from other countries into Europe, we are working with the Catholic Church across the Balkans to provide immediate relief, including food, water, access to sanitation. We are also providing information, legal services and medical care. In the Middle East, we’re assisting more than 800,000 war-affected Syrians and more than 100,000 displaced Iraqis with critical support like shelter, education and counseling. In Europe, we plan to reach 300,000 people with critical assistance.

In Iraq, violence by ISIS and internal conflict have displaced an estimated 2.9 million people. Only one-third of these families are living in organized camps. Others are living with host families or in makeshift or unfinished dwellings. In addition, the country is hosting hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria.

In Lebanon and Jordan, most of the 3.4 million people who have sought refuge from the war in Syria—mostly women and children—are struggling to get by. With escalating violence, the nearly 5-year civil war in Syria continues to devastate people's lives.

In Europe, the stream of refugees and migrants continues unabated, with thousands of people arriving at European shores daily. So far, countries in Europe have received more than one million people—and resources to assist them are starting to dwindle.

Please pray for the families affected by the terrifying violence. And please give generously to strengthen our response to the refugee crisis and conflicts in the Middle East.
