The Mission: Millions of people, primarily women and children, remain in the Middle East by the Syrian border but are living as refugees from their war torn country. They are packed into bordering nations who are struggling to care for them as they wait for an opportunity to safely return to their homeland. Hundreds of thousands are forced to live outside the established camps and they struggle to exist without a home, no work and few assets. There are effective organizations in place, doing their best to care for the needs of the refugees. Friend Ships plans to increase their ability to help these desperate families by collecting and transporting hundreds of tons of food, blankets, clothing and medical supplies aboard our ship Courageous. We already have new clothing, blankets and medical supplies. We need additional food items.

How you can help: Donate $100 to provide 800 meals including transportation directly into the hands of the aid workers. Donate $500 and provide 4000 meals. Donate to purchase an entire pallet of dehydrated food for $1000 that will provide more than 8000 meals including transportation. Click Here to donate >>>

FREE EBOOKS NOW AVAILABLE: Friend Ships has made available four E-books for free download at Smashwords. "Why Give" is a review of the many scriptures in the Bible that tell us how God wants us to respond to the needs of the poor, what He Himself does for them and what rewards there are for this service. "How to Provide Food for People in Need" gives guidance on starting and operating a food distribution program, detailing what we have learned in our thirty years of collecting food and distributing it here in the U.S. "From Jesus With Love" is a basic introduction to relief missions for youth and "Ready Response" outlines possibilities and what to consider when taking a team to help in the Part 2, Jesus & Companyaftermath of a disaster. We hope these books will be a blessing and encouragement to people who would like to work in relief missions.
