A Time to Sew For our brothers and
Ruth and Pat Lee invited members of Kanata Community Christian Reformed Church in Ottawa, Ont., to their home on two Sunday evenings in Nov. 2015 to eat dinner and discuss the plight of refugees fleeing the civil war raging across Syria.
For millions of people, 2017 was like living through a nightmare. Bombed out homes in war-ravaged Syria; east African communities crippled by malnutrition; homes left in ruin after an earthquake in Mexico; parents weeping over their lost sons and daughters in Myanmar and Bangladesh.
On November 28, World Renew celebrated Giving Tuesday and asked you to help families forced to flee their homes because of conflict. In the Middle East, over eleven million Syrians have been displaced from their communities because of civil war that has raged for over six years. In Myanmar, a recent outbreak of violence against the Rohingya people has forced over 625,000 people to flee into Bangladesh since the end of August.
