As thousands of refugees and migrants from Northern Africa, Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq are flowing into Europe, Lutheran World Relief is responding with material assistance and is supporting the relief effort of the Act Alliance.
LWR is shipping Mission Quilts, Baby Care Kits and Personal Care Kits to Serbia to distribute to refugees and migrants. Since October 2012, LWR has provided $7.05 million in assistance to Syrian refugees, reaching more than 235,912 people.
LWR is also supporting the ACT Alliance, a coalition of more than 140 churches and faith-based organizations that is providing humanitarian aid to refugees in Greece, Hungary and Serbia. LWR’s initial support will aid ACT members who are providing hygiene items, winter coats and blankets, emergency shelter and psychosocial support in two temporary camps in Hungary.
We continue to remain in contact with the ACT Alliance to determine additional needs on the ground an how LWR can assist to meet these needs. We will continue to channel our support to the Syrian crisis through the ACT Alliance platform to ensure a well-coordinated response.
