The Orthodox Christian Network (OCN) has aired an interview with Roy Azar, project coordinator for the International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC), on OCN Now Radio. As Syria’s civil war now enters into its third year, it is the families still living in the country who suffer the most and the IOCC is one of the few humanitarian organizations still in Syria providing desperately needed relief to people affected by the conflict. The organization has been working inside Syria since it began responding in 2012 to the humanitarian needs, and OCN was able to supply this firsthand account from Mr. Azar, who has been working on the front lines of this crisis.
OCN Offers Firsthand Account of Syrian Crisis
…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.
Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.
For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.
If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
