Our trip goals:
- Medical Clinic for Refugees
- Medical Support/Training for our Medical Clinics
- Children's and Youth Ministry Programs
We need physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, and other medical professionals, to form a medical team, as well as Arabic speakers to serve as translators for our medical clinics. Since the conflict began, we have sent medical teams to the region to help with the overall humanitarian and medical crisis. We will work alongside other ministries that have a long-term presence in the region. Keep in mind that we will be working, not in the conflict zones, but in refugee areas.
In addition, we will provide children's and youth ministry programs for the refugee families in cooperation with the local church; as such, we will need children's and youth ministry workers.
Two major regional conflicts are causing terrible death and destruction across multiple countries in this region. The Syrian Civil War has caused more than 400,000 deaths and more than 5 million refugees to flee their homes. The rise of ISIS has caused the deaths of tens of thousands and displaced more than 3.3 million people in Iraq alone.
