MISSION CAPSULES: June 20th is World Refugee Day. No one is a refugee by choice. Refugees and internally displaced people are forced to flee their homes out of fear for their lives and liberty. Many live in crowded camps, waiting for peace and an opportunity to return home. Presbyterian World Service & Development supports displaced people living in refugee camps and those looking to build new lives here in Canada. Currently PWS&D is helping the ACT Alliance bring urgently needed assistance such as food, shelter, clothing and water to people affected by the ongoing conflict in Syria. On World Refugee Day, please pray for the people of Syria or make a donation to PWS&D that will ensure families are given life-saving assistance and hope for the future.
