From Pastor Hans J Deml

Thank you very much for supporting "refugee home" that we operate. We could bring them here warmly because of your help. Currently we have 15 families, with 8 children The ages are between 2 to 14 years old.l
They had evacuated from Israeli military attack in Gaza into Syria. They were living in Syria after their village was destroyed again. Their house in Syria was destroyed.l
One of their daughters was killed by a bombing in Syria, and one of the mothers died during the evacuation in Turkey. They had a long and dangerous 6-week journey. It began with taking a boat to Turkey, and through Balkans countries by bus and foot. They are now, accepted as refugees, and their children are permitted to go to school. l
