Grain of Wheat Syria organized 9 camps in summer 2015 for 830 kids, some from Muslim background families. Many from the rebel held areas in Aleppo were not able to bring their kids to one of the camps due to the constant firing of rockets and bombs. For that camp out of the 80 kids registered, only 45 came.
“Thank you for coming. I know you risked your lives, but I also know God will reward you. These kids have not laughed for a long time, you can’t imagine how overjoyed I am to see them laughing again.”
-Jiro Ghazarian (Pastor of the Armenian Protestant Church in Syria)-
“It’s more important for me to see my son growing up as a Christian, than to have this bag of food, because the food will be gone after a week or two, but my son’s faith and transformation will remain for eternity!” exclaimed the mother of Abdulrazak, age 11, who attends a weekly club and receives a bag of food.
“In spite of the volatile situation in Aleppo and the formidable circumstances, you are still spreading the message of joy and love, when others have left.”
-A Syriac Orthodox Church leader-
