Holistic Ministry to Iraqi Refugees

The Bible says : “If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?  Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. (1 John 3: 17-18)

Chaldeans are Christians from Iraq whose houses were destroyed and they were dispersed from their country to Lebanon. They lost their homeland which they lived in. Many families lost dear ones and lost properties that were destroyed by ISIS. The Chaldeans used to live in abundance in their county Iraq; after dispersion they are living in poverty and are always in need. They are broken and lost their happy spirit to live. Grief and sadness engulf their lives emotions.

MELM has been there for Iraqis helping with filling their needs by distributing hundreds of food packages to them. From the suburb of Beirut they gathered to take their food packages in Sabitieh center. They were happy and grateful for what they received asking for more support because their need is immense.
