Baptist World Aid Australia: Lebanon
Target: $50,000 (Tax-deductible)

The Syrian civil war is a humanitarian crisis that affects 13 million people. With over 70% of Syrian refugees living below the poverty line, we are supporting the distribution of urgently needed items to 20,000 people that are a means for survival during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as resources to survive the harsh winter months. To address the root causes of extreme poverty we’re also supporting programs that will enable 3000 marginalised people to access public services, receive education & access to vocational training & support systems.

Baptist World Aid Australia: Ukraine
Target: $18,000 (Tax-deductible)

With Russia’s recent aggression toward Ukraine, a humanitarian crisis is escalating as people leave their homes in search of safety. As the situation continues, the UNHCR expects that millions more Ukrainians will be displaced, exacerbating the already urgent need for food, emergency services, medical care and refuge. Your donation today will provide these and other necessary items for displaced people as well as shelters set up for them.
