Holistic Ministry to Syrian Refugees

Jesus said: “You are the salt of the earth… You are the light of the world….let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:13-16)

The verses above inform us that Jesus holds us responsible for our mission to the world. Syrian refugees were forced to leave their country and all their processions behind, but they should not feel ignored or left alone. They escaped the destructive civil war and are currently living in tents, experiencing below average humane conditions.

MELM is reaching out to these families and we are providing the men, women and kids all the necessary basic type of food and milk that help their survival. When we go to the Bekaa valley (which is very close to the Syrian borders) and arrive to the camps of the Syrian refugees we are welcomed with a big smile, as they realize and appreciate our hand of help for their miserable condition.  MELM with the generous gifts of donors was capable to donate hundreds of food packages to the refugees that will last for two weeks.

MELM visited the Syrian refugees who live in camps made of tents in the Bekaa valley. MELM distributed food packages; each package was given to each family contained 3 kg of rice, 3 kg of wheat groats (bergol), 2 kg of sugar, 2 liters of oil, tomato sauce, 4 potions of pasta, 2 portion of Tuna fish, 2 portions of sardine, 2 portions of cheese, meat cans, Halawa, Foul, beans and salt.

They were very grateful of what they received and appreciated our ministry of compassion to them, hoping we visit them again to provide more help and assistance.
