“World Relief condemns the use of chemical weapons of any kind and in any situation. We are heartbroken for the Syrian people.

BALTIMORE, MD –  World Relief issues the following statement in response to US intervention in Syria: 

“Recent developments in Syria only serve to reconfirm how complex and difficult the situation on the ground truly is. World Relief condemns the use of chemical weapons of any kind and in any situation. We are heartbroken for the Syrian people.
 
Our focus remains the same today as it has been, to serve the most vulnerable in the region, including refugees and those internally displaced by the Syrian civil war. We are also reminded that the children of Syria are the world’s responsibility. We join millions around the world in praying for the Syrian people, that peace and stability would return to the region, and that the end of this horrible violence might come quickly.”
