Millions of refugees have traveled through Turkey, where some of them have chosen to settle while others have continued the trek to Europe and other countries. Foursquare Disaster Relief and our Foursquare churches in Turkey and Europe continue to work in partnership to respond and minister to the needs we see with hope, care, and God's love. Refugees are now being met at the border and in cities with an invitation of friendship and support.
In the early days of response to this need, FDR started an initiative called Project Sanctuary, with the mission to provide hope as these refugees entered foreign lands trying to create a new life. It was an open door for the Church to come alongside and deliver God's love during these refugees' most significant time of need. This movement of people and their needs has continued, and the Church has responded to the ongoing needs.
Foursquare Turkey has provided hundreds of thousands of meals, clean water, shelter, and much-needed supplies in partnership with FDR. Local, regional pastors have prayed with many and expressed God's love through Jesus. Pray with us that God will continue to pour His love on the people. Amid horror and tragedy, may people of the region find hope, the gospel, and sanctuary.
