Syrian mothers are desperate to send their children to school

And you can help them

Since 2015, BMS World Mission has been helping Syrian refugee children and their families. Help us continue to fund an education centre outside of Beirut, helping to provide a future that many thought lost.

There are an estimated 1.5 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon, and the education system is too stretched to accommodate the huge number of children needing a place in school. We need your help to help expand BMS’ work even further, to reach more children with the simple, but life-transforming gift of education.

Children in class in Lebanon
Syrian refugee children are desperate to join classes like this. You can help them.

Donia fled to Lebanon from Syria with her two young daughters, aged two and five years old. “Our town was surrounded by mountains and those mountains saw a lot of war. It was a dangerous place to be,” says Donia.

When her eldest daughter, Ali, turned six, Donia tried to get her a place in school. But no-one would take her. Having fled their home, friends, and country, Donia was watching her daughter’s future slip away too.

Ali was hurt by what she saw in Syria. Now, she has friends at school and is getting a good education.

But you helped change her future

Two years ago, Ali was given a place at the BMS-supported learning centre, and she’s thrived. “Ali didn’t have any friends or family in Lebanon and was hurt by what she saw in Syria,” says Donia. “Now, she has friends at school and is getting a good education. She even teaches her younger sister what she is learning.”

Children like Ali have been through more trauma than most of us can possibly imagine. And they deserve a chance. We know that you believe that as much as we do. If you can, please give generously to support our education work in Lebanon. You can help protect more children’s futures.

What can I do?

Give £15 – this can pay for a desk and chair for a child

Give £32 – this can pay for one child’s school transport for half a term

Give £113 – this can pay for a teacher for a week

Help us transform lives today

We know that you believe these children deserve a chance as much as we do. If you can, please give generously to support our education work in Lebanon. You can help protect more refugee children’s futures. You can restore hope to more mums.
