The children of Syria are marked by conflict that has persisted since 2011. Parents and friends have disappeared and died or have been wounded. The signs of war are imprinted on the landscape and on the hearts of its people.


These children have suffered enough and need milk to grow and stay healthy!


The actual cost to purchase 250g of powdered milk is about $7.50. The average monthly salary in Syria, according to studies in 2017, is about $75

The unemployment rate is 79%.


For its first six active months in the city of Homs, this Drop Of Milk program, supported by Aid to the Church in Need Canada, will provide milk to 6,943 children ten years and under.


For only $55, you can help support the health of a child from Homs by providing them with milk for a full six months!

$55  to provide milk necessary to the health of one child for 6 months

$110  to provide milk necessary to the health of two children for 6 months

$165 to provide milk necessary to the health of three children for 6 months

Let’s pray together so that the children of Homs can get the milk they so badly need.



Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:

where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy.


My heart is filled with hope for these children of Homs.

May my prayer be for them, a source of comfort and of peace.
