Reaching out to Refugees

Serving Refugees Locally

YWAM Sacramento partners locally with World Relief (www.worldreliefsacramento.org) in its efforts to serve and minister to the many refugees arriving each month.  We would love if you would join with us in being the hands and feet of being the Gospel poured out in our community.

Serving Refugees Globally

From January 21 – February 5, 2016 YWAM Sacramento had a team serving on the shores of Lesvos, Greece (near the coast of Turkey).  They served at one of the main U.N. camps located in Skala Sikamineas, where YWAM and Samaritan’s Purse are helping coordinate the efforts.

For the past few months they’ve been receiving on average 1,000 people through their location everyday. These people are arriving on boats and whatever they can find that floats. Many vessels capsize, and its occupants are left to either swim or perish, and the situation will become more dire as the winter weather moves in. In this camp, the primary need is trustworthy people that have a heart to serve, love Jesus, and are willing to come.  We will be helping refugees as they reach the shore, distributing blankets and food, cleaning up the trash that accumulates, and cleaning toilets and showers. It is not a glamorous place, but it’s where help is most needed.  And we are praying for open hearts to hear the message of the Gospel!

Would you give to help meet the needs of these beautiful people? They need a helping hand, and the message of HOPE!

DONATIONS WELCOME!

In addition to our outreach efforts,  we are continuing to collect funds to help our ministry serve these refugees.

The following video, from Samaritan’s purse, shows the situation on the ground, where help is most needed.
