The season of Advent is about hope and anticipation—a hope that stems from the belief that at the end of every year, the world can be remade anew. It’s an interpretation of Advent that resonates with those of us who are safe, with those of us who live with the assurance that food, shelter, and love are ever-present. We have the luxury of waiting. We have the comfort to believe that the world indeed can be better.
For Syrian refugees, however, the situation is much different—they wait. They do so without the promise that peace, food, or shelter will be forthcoming. And after six years of unspeakable violence, they can’t be too sure that their world will improve.
Diaconia Connections is inviting you to help us provide survival kits to families in Syria. Working alongside our partners in the Tartus area of Syria, and with the Lutheran World Federation, we will be purchasing and assembling survival kits that are designed to meet the basic needs of a family of five.
Each survival kit is packed with the necessities of medicine and basic supplies essential to survive amidst the day-to-day realities of a seemingly endless war.
A donation of only $82 provides a kit that will last a family for 3 months.
Our goal is to provide 1, 900 families with 2 kits each.
