The shocking and upsetting pictures that have swept through the media showing the plight of migrants and refugees escaping Syria and attempting to find shelter in Europe has shaken the western world and the students of Portadown College who held a collection this week for Drop In Ministries.

For Drop In Ministries, sitting back and doing nothing is not an option, so as an organisation who specialise in providing humanitarian aid to the helpless they are responding to the plight of the Syrian refuges by providing practical help in Greece this week.

Ronnie Dawson, director of Drop Inn┬áMinistries explains: “Well, Greece is the foremost country bringing refugees in that are coming across from the Mediterranean. And secondly, we already have people on the ground providing food and water for the refugees. So, this time next week, we will have a team there working on the ground, bringing practical love to these people. Please support us and donate if you can as we help these people in their hour of desperate┬áneed.”

Easter Holidays begin today. Enjoy some rest, make time for study and we'll see you back at PC on Monday 29th April Week B.
