3,000 families impacted
In 2016, 3,000 families attended the Bible-based trauma healing ministry in Jordan initiated by the Bible Society in Syria. Pastor Amjad, one of our volunteers, said when children first came to him, revenge was in their hearts and their drawings were full of guns.

At the end of the sessions, they drew children holding each other’s hands.

Across the Middle East today, God is at work to restore children – and your Easter gift will help reach more young refugees.

Bring healing to children traumatized by war


The ongoing conflict in Syria has not only displaced thousands of families, it has traumatized millions of Syrians. Many of them have witnessed violence, and have had to endure days without food and the necessities of life while fleeing to safer ground. In refugee camps, they are faced with more challenges, leading to despair and loss of hope.

Many of these refugees are children.

Right now, Jordan and Lebanon are home to more than 850,000 Syrian refugee children. There is a desperate and urgent need to reach out to as many of these innocent ones as we can.

The Bible Society in Syria has been active in reaching out to Syrians in refugees camps. The Bible Society staff has realized that there is a high demand for trauma healing programs especially among refugee children. In 2016, through the support of partners like the Canadian Bible Society, they started offering trauma healing workshops at the camps. But your support is needed to help the Bible Society in Syria continue these programs. Your special Easter gift will

  • Provide Bible booklets to refugee children attending our trauma healing groups in refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan;
  • Provide handbooks to volunteers leading the trauma-healing workshops;
  • Also provide Scriptures to Syrian refugees in Canada.

Jesus died and rose again to heal and restore broken lives. This is the message of Easter. As we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, you can help broken and fearful children be restored by God’s love. You can bring light and hope to young minds trapped in a nightmare. You can reach a generation of children who have lost their childhood to war. You can do it with a gift today!




$30 will provide a Bible to three traumatized children.

$50 will give 6 refugee families Scriptures in Canada.

$100 will provide 15 Bible booklets to children and one handbook to a volunteer in a trauma healing group.
