Appeal for Yemen, DRC & Syria

The DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) has launched an appeal to help 3 specific vulnerable countries that have been devastated by war and on top of their fragile natures now are facing trying to fight corovavirus as it spreads through refugee camps.

• In Yemen, millions of people have been facing the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, with extreme hunger and violence part of everyday life. Now, there’s coronavirus too.

• In the Democratic Republic of Congo, decades of internal conflict, as well as numerous Ebola outbreaks, have wreaked havoc upon the country. Now, there’s coronavirus too.

• In Syria, entire cities have been reduced to rubble in one of the most destructive conflicts in recent history. Millions have been forced from their homes. Now, there’s coronavirus too

As churches we would like to encourage you to donate to help people in these 3 ravaged countries as they strive to overcome more challenges through the support of organisations like Tearfund. You can donate through TearFund or through DEC
