Your generosity means families around the world have reason to dance in their socks–families who have been living in poverty can now have food on the table, opportunities to go to school, and sustainable livelihoods.
Just as your socks go wherever you need them to, so does this gift. Your gift of socks funds help for families when and where it is needed most. Families like Leila’s.
Leila and her family are Syrian refugees who fled to Lebanon when ISIS attacked their home. While on the move, her husband was captured and imprisoned for two months, so Leila was left on her own with her two children. Without warm clothes, the children became sick from the freezing weather and she had no way to afford medical treatment.
Our Christian Partner provided Leila with medical assistance, social support, food vouchers, gas for heating and cooking, and a washing machine. While Leila and her family still struggle, they are thankful for the support they have received.
‘I feel very thankful, for everything that happened during this project. You never left us, you stood by us and protected us,’ Leila said. ‘We were in a dark place for a long time, and although we still are, we have hope that things will be better.’
