CHILDREN CAUGHT IN CONFLICT/REFUGEES

A mother and her two children being looked at by a worker.

Imagine you’re a child. Now, imagine what it would be like if your family had to flee from your home in the middle of the night because of violence or persecution. You’re shocked. You’re frightened. You’re vulnerable.

 

To be vulnerable can mean a lot of things: hunger, sickness, being alone, nowhere safe to lay your head, lack of education. Children who have been caught in conflict often experience this list on top of the trauma of losing their homes and, often, their loved ones.

 

Around the world, more than 30 million children have been forced from their homes due to conflict, violence, and persecution. Right now, children are reeling after their entire lives have been uprooted. They need hope, healing, and love.

 

As the church, we can say to children caught in conflict, “You are not forgotten!”

By providing displaced children with necessities such as food, safe water, winter blankets, and education, you will ensure they have hope for a better tomorrow. By providing care and compassion in the name of Christ, you will remind them they are not forgotten and that they are loved by God.

 

Together, we are the church. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children.

MIDDLE EAST SCHOOLS

NCM Canada is supporting Middle East Schools for refugee children and children of the poorest host families.  Always working on a tight budget, the pandemic has put the school at risk of not being able to me legal and programmatic responsibilities. Supplemental financial support will allow the education to continue for these children who may not otherwise have access.

 

From time to time, NCM Canada also funds support for much needed repairs and renovations to the school to meet health and safety standards.

Report from School #1

he Ministry of Education had previously raised concerns with the Nazarene school in terms of bathroom facilities, amongst other things. Representatives from the Ministry of Education came to evaluate the school after the renovations and they gave full marks to our school. They expressed their amazement at the ability of the school to make improvements during this time of COVID. They also praised the school for their hygiene/sanitation management through placement of handwashing and hand sanitizing points throughout the school.

Report from School #2

Last winter we suffered from the ceiling falling apart in the computer room, because our building is old. It happened during a weekend so thank God, no one was hurt. We could not afford to fix the ceiling of the computer room and for that we had to close it and prevent the students from getting inside or use it for about 2 months.   It is now fixed, thanks to NCM Canada, and the room has been refurbished. Students are using and enjoying the computer room once again!
