Christmas for Refugees

Aug 2nd, 2018 | By

Will we be able to meet all requests for the Christmas program? In Lebanon our ministry partner wants to increase the program to 2,000 children and to furnish two blankets to each family.

Sadly, regardless of how many families we reach, many thousands more will spend Christmas in a tent in a farmer’s field.
