Your generosity is giving hope back to exiled families from Ukraine, like Eugene’s, through emergency care and assistance.

In Jordan, Syrian refugees like Ashia and her family are taking part in livelihood programs and receiving counselling and support. Thanks to you, they are healing from trauma and finding peace in their adopted home.
