Urgent Need: Relief for Kurds fleeing ISIS to Turkey

This weekend, Multiple Tens of thousands of Kurds fleeing an ISIS advance amassed on the Turkish border, in terrible conditions, some even reported to have died of thirst. Turkey has now opened the border, allowing 66,000 Kurds to enter within 24 hours – a number that has since grown to over 130,000.

Many of these people are fleeing from Kobane, where up to 200,000 internally displaced people have already been seeking refuge, so there will likely be even more pressure on the border very soon.

Horizons’ team in Lebanon is attempting to send staff to southern Turkey in order to share the gospel while distributing emergency relief among the refugees.
