PRESBYTERIAN SHARING: Human Rights Day (10)
For Ahmad and Sarah and
their daughters Reem and Rana, each day brought distress, thinking about what
the future might hold. Their home in Al Raqqa, Syria had been bombed, and acts
of brutal violence were taking place in their own neighbourhood. The family
escaped to Kfarbo and forged a home in a cramped, unfurnished apartment.
Navigating the streets of a brand-new city, in a country broken by over eight
years of civil conflict, Ahmad and Sarah prayed each day for peace and relief
from hunger. Their prayers were answered when the family received their first
food and hygiene basket through a PWS&D-supported project with Canadian
Foodgrains Bank partners. “It came at the right moment,” says Ahmad. PWS&D responds to those living in danger
