The UK Mercy Appeal is a vital source of funding for our teams around the world, helping them respond to urgent cries for help from people in crisis.
"But a Samaritan, as he travelled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine..."
During 2017, one of the projects we aim to support is working with Sudanese refugees living in Egypt. As a result of the ongoing conflict in Sudan over recent years, there are now an estimated 5 million, mostly Muslim, Sudanese people living in the country. Many are homeless and hungry, with no source of income or support, and increasingly disillusioned with Islam. As our team has reached out with acts of compassion and kindness we have found a genuine openness to Christ.
Gifts given to the 2017 Mercy Appeal will help us bring Good News to those who are suffering, in Egypt and around the world throughout the coming year.
