The Syrian people once lived lives like ours. Safe, happy and free.

Today, almost half live in squalor and fear.

Today, more than 65 million refugees have been forced to flee their homes as a result of war and persecution across the world.

The challenge is for the faith community to respond as Good Samaritans.

Church Response For Refugees (also known simply as For Refugees) is a movement of individuals, churches and communities coming together to use its voice, influence and resources to actively welcome and support refugees.
