The real-life superheroes helping Syrian refugees

Feras Fayyad·TED Fellows: Shape Your Future

“Society has a set of stories it tells itself about who refugees are and what they look like, says documentarian and TED Fellow Feras Fayyad. With his films, he’s on a mission to separate the facts about refugees from fiction, as a form of resistance — for himself, his daughter and the millions of other Syrian refugees across the world. A harrowing account, a quest to end injustice and a testament to the power of storytelling.”

Walk with Little Amal, a theatrical journey celebrating the refugee experience

Amir Nizar Zuabi·TEDMonterey

“In a staggering display of creativity and community, theater director Amir Nizar Zuabi introduces “The Walk”: a theatrical journey following a nine-year-old refugee girl named Amal (represented by a giant, lifelike puppet) as she makes her way from Turkey to England. Zuabi shares the bold vision behind this cultural odyssey aimed at spreading hope and celebrating the refugee experience — and joins us live from Turkey as Amal passes through a village.”

Your Church – Your Opportunity

White’s Chapel UMC is assisting our community’s documented asylees and refugees via a number of caring programs.  These Strangers in a Strange Land come to us with needs ranging from enhancing their English skills to providing help navigating grocery stores, doctor’s offices, and the work place.  We answer the call.

1 John 3:18 guides us: “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”   Here are two opportunities to learn more about the world these newcomers deal with and your chance to make a lasting difference.  Please join us as you are able and motivated.

An inspiring story of people living out the way of Christ from  They write:

We are a movement of people whose faith has called us to open our hearts and our communities to refugees.

Supported by Religions for Peace, UNICEF, and a global coalition of religious leaders, we invite people of all religions to let their values guide them in the service of others.

Faith in action

“Give justice to the weak and the fatherless;
maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked”
Psalm 82:3–4

“… seek justice,
correct oppression;
bring justice to the fatherless”
Isaiah 1:17

Jesus asked his disciples to “pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest” (Matt 9:38). WE are those laborers – and deeply blessed to be so! See below for ways to help!

An invitation from UNHCR

Each day war forces thousands of families to flee their homes. People like you, people like me. To escape the violence, they leave everything behind – everything except their hopes and dreams for a safer future.

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency believes that all refugees deserve to live in safety.
