Fr. Ben's Visit to Syria

Fr. Ben has finally made it into Syria. A week ago he made the dangerous journey to Damascus to see how we can help the Christian population which has suffered so much. He met with a number of Church leaders and ordinary Syrians. The people are suffering greatly both from the years of fighting and the effects of sanctions which are hurting the ordinary people. It looks like we have the possibility of at least three projects - more of our “Project Jonah” helping families start small businesses so they can stay and have a future.  More pics available here.
