ref·u·gee

noun

a person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster.


Vision Beyond Borders is committed to helping the persecuted church in crisis and acting as compassionate witnesses to those who have fled conflict from radical Islamic terrorism and war in the Middle East. Many organizations that initially provided humanitarian aid to the refugees have left, yet the need still hasn't been fully met. Radical Islamic terrorism continues to wreak havoc in the Middle East and it is important we do not forget these people who are in such great need. Countless numbers continue to flee and remain displaced without stable living conditions. They are deprived of even the most basic necessities of food, shelter, and clothing. We want to demonstrate the love of Christ through practical actions to meet physical and spiritual needs.


We continue to send containers of emergency humanitarian relief throughout the Middle East where contacts are distributing the contents to refugees. These containers will be on-going to provide for urgent needs, such as hygiene items, medicine, medical supplies, clothing, shoes, blankets, and school supplies.



We are in need of funds to ship the containers. Shipping a container to the Middle East will cost anywhere from $7,500 - $12,000.

OVERVIEW

During the fall of 2018 we began to increase our presence in the Southeast U.S. Atlanta, GA is currently being used as a location to collect materials to send to closed countries in Central America.

 

CLARKSTON, GA

Clarkston, a city just outside Atlanta, is home to a large population of refugees from closed areas around the world. We are working with ministries in the area to reach the unreached people groups now on U.S. soil. This suburb of Atlanta is considered to be the most diverse square mile in America, with over 40 nationalities and 60 languages being represented. The “Ellis Island of the South” is a designated refugee resettlement centre that welcomes 1,500 refugees every year from areas such as Burma, Bhutan, Ethiopia, Somalia, the Congo, and the Middle East. With unreached people groups now in our area, we are serving alongside existing ministries to introduce the gospel into their homes.

 

ATLANTA, GA

Atlanta is now a donation center for materials going to Clarkston, GA and closed countries in Central America. We are collecting materials such as suitcases, clothes, medical kits, toiletries, small toys, and school supplies.
