This Friday we expanded our work beyond the camp at Mar Elias. Working with the congregation of Mar Elias and the loca Baptist church, we took food, clothes and shoes to IDPs in a makshift camp on the edge of the city. These IDPs are Muslim families, unable to enter the city, or find refuge in the overcrowded camps. In the past they were self sufficient and managing to cope, but as weeks have turned into months they have started to seek help, and we are working to offer that.
We are currently in the throws of turning our appeal into a charity. This takes time. The paperwork is being finalised and will be submitted to the Charity Commission in England and Wales shortly. We will update people as time passes on our progress, and look forward to becoming a fully fledged charity in the very near future. #charity #ankawa
