Bible Soc: Bibles for Aleppo
Bibles are needed for Aleppo’s child survivors.
Finally there’s peace in Aleppo. But my heart goes out to the children. These child survivors have been left traumatised. They only know of a brutal and violent world.
I’ve met these Syrian children, blank and listless through trauma.
But what lifts me from despair is how I’ve seen God’s word bring joy and hope to their young lives. So I assure you – you can help. Can you help provide Syrian children with God’s word today?
Our team in Aleppo recently distributed 5,000 Bible picture books around Syria. My colleague Gaith told me, ‘The smile in the eyes of childrenreceiving Scripture touched me more than anything. A camera could not catch it. It was just so beautiful.’
One small boy who had never seen a Bible before said, ‘I even cried out to Jesus during this terrible war. Now I can learn his word!’
Gaith urgently wants to provide another 25,000 children with Bibles, New Testaments and Scripture colouring books.
It costs just £10 to provide two Syrian children with the Bible. Please will you offer hope and joy to children emerging from a broken, frightening world?
Thank you so much
Head of Supporter Relations
