Refugees

NEED INCREASED TENFOLD
Between 2011 and 2017, more than 5 million Syrians sought refuge outside the country and another 6.5 million were displaced within Syria. Many of these people witnessed brutal violence, bombings, shellings and kidnappings – a situation no one should ever have to live through.

Before the conflict began, the local Bible Society distributed just under 15,000 Scriptures. But in 2018, 159,000 Scriptures were distributed. The need has increased by more than tenfold!

And you can help meet this need! Donate now to share God’s Word with people, like refugees and the displaced who are facing unimaginable challenges.

Hope for Refugees and the Displaced


Jesus spent His early years as a refugee, then later on as a displaced person. (Read the story in Matthew 2.13-15) This is a part of the Christmas story that we don’t hear often.

As we look forward to celebrating Jesus’ birth, let’s take a moment to remember that right now, millions of people around the world are in the same situation, being forced to make the frightening decision of leaving their home for various reasons, such as: conflicts, natural calamities or religious persecution. Wherever they end up, they will end up facing untold challenges and finding themselves in desperate need of hope. Jesus – who knows exactly what they are going through – speaks the words that they desperately need to hear.

The refugee crisis is our opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Help bring God’s hope to the refugees and displaced today. Your donation will:

• Help the Canadian Bible Society provide God’s Word to the people of Syria;

• Provide materials for refugee children in Jordan to take part in a special Scripture-based trauma-healing course; and

• Make special Scripture resources available to churches and ministries that are welcoming Syrian refugees right here in Canada.


When you give today, know that someone around the world will be introduced to the Christmas story for the very first time and find hope in Jesus.
