The Cyprus winter has been very cold, and we are in need of blankets to distribute!
With an increase of people seeking refuge on Cyprus, coupled with the unusually cold winter, there has been an additional funding weight of trying to meet the need of warmth at night for all the people here. God has provided a source of sleeping bags which we find is the best way to meet this need. They can be used as a sleeping bag but also opened up to be used as a blanket. We began distributing these in December and are currently going through 30 a week. At a cost of 16 euro each, we are spending close to $2,300 a month to meet this need. We expect the weather to warm up in early March and this will diminish as an ongoing need. Until then, we would appreciate your help in helping us fund this very tangible way we are loving the people coming to Cyprus to seek refuge.
