The war in Syria and the Earthquake of 2023 have left hundreds of thousands of people without homes.

For those left behind in Syria’s rubble-strewn cities, often because they were unable to flee due to age, disability or illness, life is extremely difficult. The war caused wild inflation, making the purchase of basic supplies very difficult. 

Damascus Church Aid shares the love of Christ by supplying food hampers, medicine, and essentials like nappies, blankets, and clothing for people in need.

The ministry also provide school supplies for children, including stationery, school bags, textbooks, and notebooks.

“Before the crisis, our church was of 80 adult members – we knew each other – all of a sudden we saw many people coming,” says Pastor Yacco. 

“Our old building wasn’t enough for the newcomers and there was no emergency exit… if fire broke out we would all be charcoal,” he says. “Now, we have more than doubled our space. We can seat 250 people and we often have more. More and more people are coming to Christ, and evangelism, in fact, it is easier now.”

“We had no experience in managing a crisis but the Lord helped us. The Lord is seeing us through.”
