March 2018 marks six years since the war in Syria began. This conflict has created the largest displacement of people from their homes since World War II. An estimated 11 million Syrians have fled their homes, their country, all that is familiar to them. This sad refugee story is being experienced in many other countries as well: Iraq, South Sudan, Sudan, DR Congo, Rwanda, and more creating a  REFUGEE CRISIS.

We want to join with God in his calling to transform the world by loving God and by loving our neighbors (both near and far) as ourselves.

Refugee Care: Middle East

Traumatized and homeless families have fled all they have known to seek refuge in neighboring countries in the Middle East or even within Syria itself.

At NCCC we have trusted Partners in Lebanon and Jordan who are struggling to care for thousands of families. Families who are trying to feed their children and give them a safe place to live. They long for their kids to be able to go to school to learn and play like other kids.
