REFUGEES ENTERING GREECE
About The Mars Hill Initiative
We believe, in accordance with Acts 17:26-27, that God is at work. We believe that God scattered these people from their home so that some of them, in their wanderings, would find Him. We exist to make it very easy for refugees and displaced people to find God along the way.
Since 2001 waves of war, violence, political instability, and economic turmoil have wracked the Middle East leading to the destabilization and/or collapse of countries including Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and Iran. As a result, countless people have fled their homes seeking safety, economic security, and hope. Millions of them, from this block of countries, have fled across Turkey to the Aegean coast where many of them attempt treacherous water crossings in overcrowded rafts all in the hope of entering Europe. Because of the accessibility of Greek Islands like Chios, Samos, Kos, and Lesvos, Greece has become, the main entry point for the refugee crisis in Europe.
