The number of people in our world currently displaced from their homes by violence and persecution is unprecedented in human history. According to the UN Refugee Agency, there are now over 60 million displaced people on the planet, with nearly a third—20 million—living outside their country as refugees. In a global context, that means 1 in every 121 people has been forced to flee their home due to war or persecution. The current global refugee crisis is the largest humanitarian issue since World War II.
We at Chase Oaks Church want to do our part in bringing relief to the refugees who have fled to Jordan and have selected Manara International as the ministry we want to support. Every dollar given will go toward providing food, goods, education, medical care and training in income generation to support those who are not allowed to work in this foreign-to-them country.
