The massive wave of illegal migrants entering Europe is creating a humanitarian crisis. Thousands of families continue to flee from war and religious persecution in the Middle East.

Now Christian relief agencies are on the ground, doing what they can to help the refugees.

Samaritan’s Purse  is working with churches to distribute 2,000 backpacks in Macedonia. The packs are filled with hygiene items, blankets, towels, diapers, granola bars, and candy.

CBN News spoke with the ministry’s Dr. Natalie McDermott, who said the outreach shows the refugees the love of Jesus Christ.

“Our goal with Sam’s Purse is to be the hands and feet of Jesus; it’s to meet people where they’re at and bring them love in a practical way by meeting their needs,” she explained. “So sharing love with them and sharing the Gospel with them when the opportunity arises.”
