Free to be me...
That’s all children in the Middle East want.
And you can help them.
After months of home-learning, children here are finally back in school – but for those in the Middle East, it’s a different story.
Around 15 million children in the region are not in school. Long before the coronavirus pandemic arrived, conflict kept children out of the classroom. Add the misery of lockdown, and the trauma of Beirut’s huge explosion… it’s clear why young people in the Middle East feel burdened.
Marianne Daou, a children’s presenter for SAT-7 TV in Lebanon, said, “Every day, children call me to share their pain and ask for prayer. Their suffering breaks my heart.
“These children are not free to be themselves because they’re gripped by fear. They’re not free to learn because millions are not in school. They’re not free to fulfil their potential due to poverty and conflict.”
But in the midst of hardship, faith-filled television is releasing children to be free to be themselves.
SAT-7 programmes offer counselling and advice. Educational shows provide quality teaching in languages, maths and science. And children learn about God’s love and His plans for their lives.
These programmes bring moments of joy – which can be the start of a life transformed.
I’ve kept SAT-7’s songs with me as I’ve grown up...”
Sarah grew up in Syria, and SAT-7 TV was her first choice channel. War broke out when Sarah was 11 – and SAT-7’s message of faith became her strength. “The worship songs stayed in my mind and I’ve kept them with me as I’ve grown up,” she said. Aged 14, Sarah gave her life to Jesus. Today she works with displaced and orphaned children in Damascus.
Today, you can bring freedom to children in the Middle East so they can become the people God wants them to be.
