Who we are


MERATH is a faith-based organization that empowers local churches and organizations to implement relief and development projects for thousands of displaced and vulnerable families in Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq.

We believe that it is through caring for the whole person that we best incarnate the ministry of Christ, who both fed the hungry and offered His body as the bread of life, healed the sick, and preached forgiveness of sins. It is in the context of relationship and community that our church partners are able to be authentic witnesses to our vulnerable neighbors, unconditionally serving each according to their needs.
