The Refugee Ministry Fund provides practical help to refugees and internally displaced people throughout the Middle East, predominantly in Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon. As the refugee population has become more settled, the needs are changing and so less money is spent on relief and more on education for children, community development and relational support. Our partners in the Middle East maintain a strong gospel focus, seeking every opportunity to share the good news of Jesus and build disciple-making friendships.
