Syria is in the midst of a civil war, that’s been mostly raging since 2011, with the beginning of the Arab Spring. 11 million people (appx 5.6 million children) have been forced from their homes as forces loyal to the President and those opposed to his rule, battle each other, making this one of the largest refugee exoduses in history.

This uprising and the ensuing turmoil have made it possible for the rise of ISIS and the Islamic State to occur. Extremists have used this opening to take over many cities and villages in Syria, forcing Syrian Christians to flee. If they are captured before they can flee or stay behind they face slavery, torture, and murder at the hands of ISIS and Islamic forces.

With a goal of raising $10 million by December 2015, the charity, Mercury One, through their Nazarene Fund, has begun an initiative dedicated to the evacuation of particularly vulnerable Christians from countries like Iraq and Syria into new countries where they might rebuild their lives. Their plan is to save 400 Syrian Christian families from the hands of ISIS and the Islamic State terror groups.

We want to partner with Mercury One with the goal of raising $25,000 to save one Syrian Family.
