Update on Earthquake Aid Distribution

Aid that we were able to provide because of your donations has arrived in northern Syria in Idlib. The following photos show where people have set up a camp to shelter those who have lost their homes or cannot get back into their homes for fear of the them collapsing. We have a partner who can travel from Turkey into northern Syria, bringing supplies into the area. Tents, food, baby formula, and more have been delivered to the Syrians.

Thank you for your support! Please keep sharing our Syria appeal – they will need help for quite a while.

Protection for Gender Rights Activists

Equal Rights for women and girls was blossoming in Afghanistan until it came to an abrupt end when the Taliban marched into Kabul. Many of the women we are helping were the leading female gender equality activists of Afghanistan. Because of their previous activism they and their families are targets of the Taliban. We have many who are in hiding in Afghanistan or are illegal in Pakistan.

We financially support them for housing, food and life’s essentials. We pay large sums of money to help them get passports, visas and for transporting them to a third country. Once their visas have expired, we must hide them from the police so that they are not arrested and deported. Deportation for some could lead to torture and execution.

Here are just a few examples of the threat these activists are facing:

The Taliban discovered the hiding place of one our activists and came to her house. Thankfully she wasn’t there. They shot and killed her sister.

The 70-year-old matriarch of one of our families of 10 that used to run schools for girls in Afghanistan lost her 3 sons and a daughter in law to the Taliban.

A mother of another of our activists was arrested and tortured by the Taliban. We were able to finally send bribe money to gain her release.

Once we get them to a 3rd country, we work very hard to entice a western democracy to accept them.

The USA prioritizes their huge backlog of previous employees over other minorities. To apply for resettlement to the USA you must first apply to the UNHCR and receive refugee status before the Americans will begin processing them. This process can take several years. We do not believe most of our refugee friends would be able to survive without being deported.

We have assisted in the resettlement of dozens of people recently to Canada with the help of IRCC, Rainbow Refugee and Rainbow Railroad. Canada does not require preapproval by the UNHCR and is very welcoming to refugees. If you are Canadian and want to be a sponsor or have Canadian friends who might be interested in being sponsors, we would love to talk with you. Please contact us.

Each private sponsorship group needs to raise about $14,000 to $18,000 US dollars that goes into an escrow account to help the refugee during their first year in Canada. We do our best to help them raise funds.

SCM needs your help in so many ways to keep doing this work. Please donate today if you can to our New Life Fund, and share this page with whom ever you can.

Sidon Dental Clinic in Action

Our free clinic in Sidon/Saida is already helping children by treating cavities and toothaches, and providing dental hygiene. We just received some videos on the clinic in action – thanks to you painful tooth has been removed, and children are getting dental check-ups to help prevent the effects of dental neglect. There is much more going on, but these instances show what can be achieved in a short time with your help!

Be sure to donate to help keep the clinic going and providing dental and medical services to those in need.
