Prayer for Peace
Almighty God and Creator, You are the Father of all people on the earth. Guide, I pray, all the nations and their leaders in the ways of justice and peace. Protect us from the evils of injustice, prejudice, exploitation, conflict and war. Help us to put away mistrust, bitterness and hatred. Teach us to cease the storing and using of implements of war. Lead us to find peace, respect and freedom. Unite us in the making and sharing of tools of peace against ignorance, poverty, disease and oppression. Grant that we may grow in harmony and friendship as brothers and sisters created in Your image, to Your honor and praise. Amen.
Dear Friend of IOCC,
The humanitarian crisis in the Middle East has reached epic proportions. Since the Syrian crisis began more than 100,000 people have died and over 7 million people have been displaced from their homes – a situation that, according to the UN, is creating refugees at a rate not seen since the Rwandan genocide nearly 20 years ago.
IOCC is one of the few international non-governmental organizations working on the ground inside Syria as well as serving refugees in Lebanon and Jordan to provide aid to people who have been displaced by the conflict.
IOCC's emergency aid is only possible because of the ongoing support of donors like you. The needs of the Syrian people are staggering! Please join us in praying for peace in Syria and make a donation today. Your gift is vital in our efforts to continue to help those in need.
With your support, IOCC is providing:
- Critical food aid and essentials like infant care supplies and personal hygiene supplies to refugees who have lost everything.
- Home necessities including mattresses, kitchen supplies, heaters and large containers for water storage for Syrians that left their homes and all of their possessions behind.
- Shelter to those who have been displaced, often more than one time, as the conflict has escalated and expanded.
- Education by means of providing access to remedial classes and uniforms required for refugees to attend public schools.
Your support can help even more families get the food, shelter and support they need to survive this crisis and others around the world. Please give a generous gift now.
