One Great Hour of Sharing


An estimated 2.5 million people have fled to Syria’s immediate neighbors of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq, since the outbreak of civil war in March 2011. In Turkey alone, about 1 million Syrians have arrived.

The burgeoning conflict in Syria has also caused some 2 million children to drop out of school. Not only are children missing out on their education, they also are being traumatized by the violence.

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is working with partner International Blue Crescent (IBC) to address the special needs of 400 Syrian refugee children in Turkey. Through the creation of Child-Friendly Spaces, children receive psychosocial care and education to help them deal with the anxieties of war in safe, protected spaces.

More than 3,000 schools have been damaged or destroyed since the conflict in Syria began. Child-Friendly Spaces offer war-affected children a safe place to learn and grow.

UMCOR is assisting displaced Syrians, working together with international partners and exploring ways to meet their needs.

Your generous gift provides immediate assistance in the wake of conflict like this one in Syria, and supports ongoing ministries of food, shelter, health and peace. Giving today to the One Great Hour of Sharing offering ensures that UMCOR can respond anywhere in the world.
