5 ways you could help with the refugee crisis - a blog by Stewardship

The current European migrant crisis has already been named the worst of its kind since the Second World War. Thousands of people are risking their lives to escape war and persecution from countries such as Syria, Afghanistan and Eritrea.

With conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa showing little sign of improvement, Stewardship joins the ranks of those calling for urgent action to relieve the suffering of those affected.

Here are five things that you could do to help:

Thanks so much for this, just last night watching the news and the migrants on the Hungarian border being hurt by water cannons and tear gas I thought 'Lord, what can I do? How can I get involved?' This morning an email arrived from yourselves in my inbox with enough ideas to start me off. I shall pray with the rest of my family today about what we feel led to do, and it will be a start.

May God bless even further the work you are doing, and may He move His body of people in the churches to give and give generously, whether financially, prayerfully or practically.

We have found it to be very moving that local people have wanted to do more to help the Refugee crisis. Our organisation has been supporting Refugees including newly arrived Syrian families with donations of clothing, food parcels as well as giving advice on asylum and other issues. We hope public opinion will continue to shift and show compassion where it is needed.
