Few of us will ever wonder where our next meal is coming from, or whether we will have access to clean water. For millions across the world in refugee camps and remote villages, this is their everyday reality.
- 75.9 million people worldwide have been forced to flee their homes due to violent conflict in the Middle East.
- 844 million people globally lack basic drinking water access.
- Annually, 3.4 million people, mostly children, die from water-related diseases, and 9 million people of hunger-related diseases.
By definition, “life-sustaining” means to help someone or something stay alive. To BLESS, this includes supplying access to resources like clean water, food and shelter, counseling, job training, and access to hope and eternal life through the word of God.
With your support, BLESS and its partners can work to meet this need and provide life-sustaining, sustainable resources to those in need.
The sudden growth of the youth population throughout the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) will surge by about 10 million between 2015 and 2030, placing immense pressure on existing educational institutions. Most rural teachers in the MENA region have few, if any, professional or career development opportunities, which limits their teaching abilities and their grasp of the English language. Your generosity will help ELIC:
