Feeding Iraqi Refugees

David L. Meyer – CEO Hand of Hope

Noury was living in Mosul, Iraq when the school his children attended was bombed. The explosion injured his children's hands and heads, but they survived. The children had already been persecuted at the school for being Christians. The danger that was already a large part of their daily lives was growing. Life became unbearable for Noury; he had to leave his job and was forced to sell his car in order to pay for the passports and tickets he and his family needed to move to Lebanon.

In Lebanon, Noury found that life wasn’t any easier. He had to spend all he had for rent, sacrificing one of the most essential needs, food. His five children, too young to work, left him as the sole provider. The monthly food distribution his family receives through Heart for Lebanon, a ministry partner of Joyce Meyer Ministries, he says, is a gift from God. This is just one of the many ways Heart for Lebanon is making a difference in the life of refugees. Thank you for your support that helps feeds those who suffer because of the Gospel.

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
