The Middle East Refugee Crisis
Roughly 12 million Syrians have been forced from their homes by a brutal civil war. Nearly 5 million have fled to nearby countries, close to a million are seeking asylum in Europe, and over 6 million are still surviving in Syria.
East Africa Hunger and Refugee Crisis
Conflict and drought remain the two key factors at play for South Sudan and Somalia, the most at-risk countries in East Africa. They both have experienced long periods of internal conflict and violence, causing millions to be displaced from their home with no access to sustainable food. Extreme hunger threatens to engulf the entire region, including Kenya and Ethiopia. In these four countries alone, 25 million people are in desperate need of food.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in…”
- Matthew 25:35 (NIV)
