A U.S.-based Christian organization is responding to needs in a hot spot in Europe where war broke out.
A violent clash broke out in late September between Armenia and Azerbaijan over an area called Nagorno-Karabakh. Before Russia intervened to win a truce, it was the most violent clash to date in the quarter-century dispute over the contested region.
Erick Mock of the Slavic Gospel Association tells OneNewsNow there are religious conflicts, too.
“Ninety-five percent of the Armenian population claims to be Christian,” he advises, “whereas the surrounding population of Azerbaijan is predominantly Muslim.”
SGA has learned that families hurriedly fled from fighting with no shoes on their feet in frigid weather, and civilians have been killed and homes destroyed.
SGA is working through churches in the region to provide tens of thousands of refugees with humanitarian aid, medicines and warmth, and most importantly to advance the gospel.
