Refugees and IDPs
Imagine having to flee your home because of armed conflict, human rights violations, or a devastating disaster. Imagine the trauma in your home town is so real that you must make the heart-breaking choice to flee, even though you want to stay. And imagine leaving behind jobs, business, homes, friends, and everything familiar.
There are an estimated 60 to 65 million displaced persons in the world today. Some are refugees, who have crossed country borders. Some are internally displaced peoples (IDPs) who remain in their country, but are forced to leave their homes. Partner with BGR to show Jesus’ love for these families by providing items such as blankets, food packets, hygiene kits, as well as gestures of hope to those who are suffering.
