Christian Refugee Relief
In the midst of tremendous suffering, Muslims are opening to the love of Jesus. It's not enough to lend a helping hand, without offering eternal hope.
100% of gifts go to projects in the field
A group of private donors cover administrative expenses, so everything you give goes directly to help refugee families.
Call of Hope frontline workers have been in Lebanon for over a 45 years. Most of them are former Muslims themselves who have been saved by God's grace. Each one is theologically trained, and a leader in their ministry and community.

A REFUGEE WOMAN FINDS CHRIST
Before the war, Asil lived a comfortable life with her husband and 4 beautiful children in a happy home in Syria. Fleeing for their lives, Asil and her family escaped to the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon where they faced below freezing winters, inadequate food, and only makeshift tents for shelter.
Asil went from being a Muslim refugee to a witness for Christ right within the refugee camps.
One day Asil heard that Call of Hope was offering food and assistance to those in need – desperate and looking for any help she could get, she began to visit the Call of Hope Center. Asil heard the preaching of a frontline worker and was overwhelmed with curiosity about Jesus. After several months of interacting with Call of Hope workers, she received Jesus as her savior, and she has since become an eager witness, leading her friends and family in the refugee camp to Christ.
Even in the midst of intense persecution and the tragedy of life as a refugee, Asil still says “I am thankful for the war in Syria, because without it, I would never have known the love of Jesus.”
Through the work of frontline workers in refugee camps, we have seen former terrorists come to Christ and many have received lifesaving aid and hope in a time of true desperation.
Center for the blinD and disabled
In the Hezbollah-controlled Bekaa Valley, COH offers a holistic program for the blind and physically disabled. Here we provide Christian literature and Bible studies, mobility training, vocational training in cane work, chocolate production, and medical assistance for more than 200 individuals with disabilities.
In this conflict area on the border between Lebanon and Syria, many have lost their eyesight, legs, or hands from bombs and shrapnel. Almost all are from a Muslim background! People from historically opposed Sunni, Shiite, and Druze Muslim backgrounds learn to work and worship the Lord Jesus Christ together. Their families hate and kill each other, but through the love of Christ they are empowered to love one other.
Emergency relief for syrian refugees
Syria is in the middle of a bloody conflict: a polarized, armed standoff between pro-Assad forces, rebels, and now ISIS fighters is decimating the country leaving millions of civilians struggling to simply survive. In fact, several million Syrian refugees have fled the fighting, starvation and persecution for refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon.
Syria’s future is uncertain. What is certain is that Syrian refugees need immediate aid: food, medical care, blankets, and the hope that only faith in Christ can provide. Call of Hope frontline workers are on the ground responding to the cry for help even in some of the most dangerous areas.
