Mission ONE works with local organizations to help vulnerable peoples across the globe.
In March 2011, violent Syrian government crackdowns on public, anti-government demonstrations sparked country-wide violence and resulted in a devastating civil war, which led to a massive wave of refugees fleeing for their lives. Since that time, more than 5.6 million Syrians have been forced to flee their country and another 6.6 million are internally displaced. Lebanon hosts the highest number of refuges per capita at almost 1 million. Most of the refugees in Lebanon are living in destitute situations with limited access to the basic necessities of life.
Mission ONE and their Lebanon based partner, New Vision, have responded to this refugee crisis for many years with a holistic vision of caring for these refugees spiritually, physically, emotionally and educationally. This includes distribution of food, building of temporary tent shelters, trauma counseling, educational centers for children, Bible studies and much more.
The donation from the Pulte Family Charitable Foundation supports Mission ONE’s “Repatriation and Self-Reliance Project.” The project provides Syrian refugees in Lebanon with a home and job upon their repatriation to Syria.
