“The depth of suffering is unprecedented. Millions of children in Syria come under attack on a daily basis, their lives turned upside down,” said Geert Cappelaere, UNICEF Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa. “Each and every child is scarred for life with horrific consequences to their health, well-being and future.”

1. DONATE TO HELP UNICEF PROTECT SYRIA'S CHILDREN. 

Syria is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a child.  Nearly 1,300 children have been killed or injured during 2016 alone.

Inside Syria, 2.8 million children live under military siege or in hard-to-reach areas. At least 5 million Syrian children have fled their homes due to violence and war.  Some are sheltering in camps within Syria, while others live in refugee camps in Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey and Egypt. More than 2.2 million Syrian children have also been forced to leave school.

In response, UNICEF has helped mobilize the largest humanitarian operation in history, supplying food, water, education, warm clothing and critical immunizations to millions of children and their families in Syria and neighboring countries.

But Syrian children urgently need more help. UNICEF is appealing for nearly $1.4 billion for Syrian children in 2017.

Support UNICEF's lifesaving work by making a donation to provide Syrian children with the help they need now.

2. JOIN OR START A FUNDRAISER TO AID SYRIAN KIDS.

Make a difference by starting your own fundraiser in support of UNICEF's campaign to aid the more than 8.4 million children who have been hurt by the Syria conflict. You can help save a child's life or give them hope and a chance for a better future.

Or donate to the Play For Syria Facebook Fundraiser, running through April 5, 2017 to coincide with March Madness, started by more than a dozen basketball players to support UNICEF programs for children in Syria and Syrian child refugees. Some of the players are American, some Syrian, some are former NBA, some former NCAA — but all have played ball in Syria. And all are deeply concerned for the children suffering there.

Learn more about the players and their fundraiser here, and help them spread the word by sharing their fundraiser with your networks!  https://www.unicefusa.org/stories/march-madness-unfolds-%E2%80%94-one-basketball-team-plays-syrian-kids/31997

Our Unclaimed Riches God wants to bless you with things better than money

Prepare
Have you claimed the riches God has promised you today? Take time to think about the blessings God has placed in your life. You might be missing a few.

Read
Proverbs 3:1-18

Explore
It is said that God doesn’t have favorites, but He does have intimates. In fact, as it teaches in Psalms, “the Lord confides in those who fear Him” (Psalm 25:14).

For those who put their trust in Him, the Lord reveals wonderful things. And as this passage teaches, He makes available incredible riches.

Many people appear to teach that God cares about our spiritual life, but that He is detached from our physical life. That is just not so.

As this proverb plainly states, “My son (or daughter), do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. (vs 1-2).

God is not just talking “spiritual” prosperity in this chapter, although that is clearly evident (vs 4, 6, and 13). He is also talking physical riches. Just look – if you keep His commands and trust in the Lord, He will give you energy (v 7-8), abundance (v 9-10), discipline, and instruction (v 11-12).

God wants to bless you. He wants to pour out His promises on you (Matthew 7:11). And all it takes is a willing heart (v 1), love (v 3), and trust in Him (v 4).

Respond
Loving Lord, thank you for the staggering blessings you have made available to me. Teach me to trust you and to learn to be an intimate follower of you.

Besides the gift of your salvation, what is the greatest blessing God has given you? Do you believe you have unclaimed riches? The definition of unclaimed is: untaken, not demanded or requested as being something one has a right to
