Passion 2016 Raises Over $800,000 To Build Hospital In Syria

Truly incredible things happen when we unite for a common cause. At last count, $811,813.39 was raised at Passion 2016 for Project Haraka, a mission to build a hospital for women and children in Syria. This hospital will provide care for more than 12,000 displaced Syrian women and children every year in the war torn region. And, through a partnership with World Vision USA, the facility will become the first newborn ICU in NW Syria. “We aren’t fleeing from the need, we are actually leaning into the need,” Pastor Louie Giglio says.

In addition to raising funds for Project Haraka, 10,000 towels and 60,000 pairs of socks were collected to address a tangible need in the surrounding communities.
