Our History in the Middle East
In 2013, FH began working in Syria and the larger Middle East region to help victims of war stay home or close to their families, therefore avoiding the need to flee to dangerous and sometimes hostile lands. FH has staff on the ground and is working to bring resources, international expertise, standards and experience to the refugee crisis. FH’s primary partner, the Middle East Revive and Thrive (MERATH), works through local churches across Lebanon, Syria and Iraq to meet vital needs of vulnerable families with monthly food aid, winterizations, water and education.
