Only Barnabas Fund

“As a church we feel we are forgotten by the rest of the world. It is hard to understand. Barnabas Fund is the only organisation to this day who has given substantial help, supporting 500 families,” said a church leader from Central African Republic (CAR) earlier this year, recalling aid given by Barnabas Fund to care for victims of anti-Christian violence. When Islamists seized political power by force in this 85% Christian nation two years ago, “the church was forsaken and it was really hard to respond”. Some elements of the population responded instead with further violence. Pray that the current peace may be maintained, with a functioning government that is not seeking to create an Islamic state in CAR. Pray that CAR Christians will feel themselves part of a worldwide caring Christian family.
