As the violence broadens and intensifies in Syria, refugees continue to flee to neighboring countries.
Due to the escalating violence and turmoil in Syria, Syrians are fleeing to surrounding countries. Most are leaving with few possessions and very limited ability to provide for their own basic needs. In one host country in the Middle East, there are currently approximately 100,000 men, women and children scattered throughout various cities and villages. BGR partners are providing food parcels and some clothing to 400 families.

When it comes to engaging a world in need, we value prayer above everything else. But Jesus specifically commanded his followers to "Go," and Baptist Global Response (BGR) encourages God's people to personally take the love of Christ to people in need. Each project described below includes contact info to learn more about how volunteers can help. General information about volunteering through BGR can be obtained by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
