From the Moderator Gary Patterson:
More than 2 million Syrians have fled the violence in their country. The refugee crisis in Syria and beyond is being called one of the worst ever.
The United Church is launching an immediate church-wide appeal for gifts to support Syrians uprooted by civil war. The United Church has already distributed $90,000 for humanitarian relief. Far more is needed to deal with this crisis. Working with partners, your gifts will provide refugees with counselling and support, clean water and sanitation, shelter, food, blankets and toiletries.
You can give your gift through the local church marked Emergency Response-Syria Relief, by mail or directly to the United Church 3250 Bloor St W Suite 300 Toronto ON M8X 2Y4. Tax receipts will be given. Thank you for your help.
