“In spite of the silence of media about Syria and mainly Aleppo, we are back to the early days of the war, where there is a lack of every essential thing: electricity, water, gas and fuel for heating in such a bitter winter. Just imagine how the families with kids and elders are surviving and continuing their lives.The explosions and mortars are increasing and causing more damage in our midst.” This was an email message to Barnabas Fund from a Christian leader in Aleppo on 26 December. A few days later he wrote again to say that the temperatures were now as low as -7C. And they had nothing but blankets to try to keep warm. Please continue to lift up our suffering brothers and sisters in Syria, that the Lord will protect them and provide for their need.
