What does refugee ministry look like in midst of the Covid-19 pandemic? What does it look like to help refugees stuck in distant camps? Or the asylum seekers in the US we are assisting with shelter? Or the asylum seekers in Athens who recently lost the support of international humanitarian agencies? Or the asylum seekers (minors) living in group shelters in northern France? Or the resettled refugees trying to rebuild their lives in US cities but who are facing the possibility of losing their entry level jobs to quarantine?
These are questions that our IAFR team is wrestling with in this time of uncertainty.
I’m proud of how our team is leaning into this, determined to find creative ways to support our forcibly displaced friends. I’ll be writing more about that soon.
In the meantime, I hope that you are healthy and safe. May God provide our daily bread.
