Read how Samara and Yochana are seeing their visions become reality
Samara Levy is married and has two children aged three and six. She is becoming well-known for her work in sending aid to refugees.
What’s your vision?
To see the Church being the salt and light of the world (Matthew 5:13-16) through clothing the naked, caring for the sick and feeding the hungry.
And it’s not Paris

WHAT HAS CHANGED SINCE THE FIRST CHRISTMAS?
A row of children lie face down, hands tied, before being shot by masked men. Evidence has emerged of a gruesome massacre, claimed to be of Syrian Christian children.
Christians across Syria and Iraq are struggling to survive. The advance of Islamic State (IS) has made an already devastating situation worse. Kidnappings and killings of Christians are on the increase, and some Christian women and girls have been enslaved.
Yet despite impassioned pleas from Christian campaigners, the British government will only bring in refugees from UN camps. And the UN’s camps are dangerous places for Christians – IF they escape the clutches of IS to arrive at one.

Dangerous Mid-East scenario must be seen through biblical lens
By Charles Gardner
The stage is being set for what could turn into an almighty battle in the Middle East. Israel was already surrounded by sworn enemies before Russia entered the toxic fray, and we are now witnessing an extremely dangerous situation – highlighted by the blowing up of a plane over Sinai – which could erupt into a major conflict at any moment.
Orphaned by IS
While British parents were buying ‘Frozen’ merchandise for their children, thousands of women and children actually froze to death in refugee camps such as this one in Kabarto, Kurdistan, last winter. These children’s stories had aid workers weeping
As Britain’s doors remain closed to Christians fleeing the IS bloodbath, we reveal the true figures behind last year’s savage Middle East winter
The shocking figure of those who froze to death in refugee camps – an estimated 6,000 according to the regional governor – were revealed to HEART by a Kurdish-born Danish doctor working with the thousands of homeless Christians, Yezidis and Muslims in Iraqi Kurdistan.

Hundreds of Christian families have fled the city of Hassakeh
AND AGAIN CHRISTIANS FLEE for their lives in the Middle East and again western politicians issue press statements condemning the actions of Islamic State – and again, nothing really changes.
How much horror does the world need to witness in places such as Syria before action is taken? A valid question asked by the Melkite Greek Catholic Archbishop of Aleppo, Jean-Clément Jeanbart. He has warned that Christianity itself was dying out in war-torn Syria.
