Christian Aid supporter Phil Whitefield is running the Cheltenham Half-Marathon on the 29th September.
Phil will be raising money for Christian Aid's projects helping Syrian refugees. Half of the population have had to leave their homes. Now, 6.5 million people are displaced inside Syria, and millions more have fled across borders as refugees most to neighbouring Lebanon and Iraq.
Christian Aid partners are carrying out a three-year project working in the north of Iraq and the east of Lebanon. The project will focus on helping children, youth and people with disabilities gain access to the services they need to survive and flourish. This will be done by providing education, psychosocial support and vocational skills training.
