Call to prayer and action
syria: a call to prayer and action
The people of Syria are on our hearts and minds. More than two years of conflict have resulted in over 100,000 deaths, 2 million Syrians becoming refugees, and the internal displacement of as many as 5 million Syrians. The use of chemical weapons on August 21, 2013, resulted in the deaths of over 1,400 people, including hundreds of children—a move prompting the United States, along with other nations, to contemplate the use of military force. The Peacemaking Program and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) are working collaboratively in PDA’s ongoing humanitarian response to the crisis in Syria.
