Real Change for Refugees

Almost every day, we see terrible images of refugees suffering all across Europe. Providing food and shelter is essential. But we know it’s not enough – we must also tackle this crisis at its root.

There are strong indications that acts of genocide may have been committed in Syria and Iraq. People are forced to choose between fleeing their homes or the risk of being killed just because of their ethnicity or what they believe.

If there is an official verdict of genocide from the UN, the international community would be legally bound to act. You can help call for the UN to investigate acts of genocide in Syria and Iraq – and for them to launch an appropriate response.

Pray

Father, help us to not to be overwhelmed by the size of this crisis but to keep our hearts soft. We pray for our world leaders, that they won’t give in to fear and keeping out refugees, but to protect people from evil.
Amen 302 Amens

Almost every day, we see terrible images of refugees suffering all across Europe. Providing food and shelter is essential. But we know it’s not enough – we must also tackle this crisis at its root.

Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) works in over 20 countries across Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America, defending everyone’s right to freedom of religion or belief.

Three quarters of the world’s population lives in countries with severe restrictions on their religious freedom – in fact, it’s one of the most widely-violated human rights in the world.

We think this is unacceptable. We’re working to change it. Our vision is of a world where everyone is free to choose their beliefs – to hold and practice any religion they like, or none at all.
