￼The United Church of Canada is deeply concerned for the more than 6 million people who are now internal or external refugees, displaced by the fighting in Syria.
As the numbers of refugees increase, the United Church has been asked to help. On September 5, 2013, the church launched an emergency appeal for donations that will be directed to our partners on the ground. The appeal was reissued on September 11, 2015.
Thanks to the generosity of those who responded to the church’s initial appeal, as of September 2015 the United Church has contributed more than $400,000 to support partners responding to this crisis.
Please provide your support today. All donations received and designated for “Syria Relief” will be applied directly to support United Church partners in this work. The Canadian government will match individual donations made between September 12 and December 31, 2015.
