Frequently Asked Questions

When we look at this verse in Galatians, we can see that Paul calls on believers to help all people, but especially our own Christian brothers and sisters. There are lots of excellent Christian organisations around the world that do good to all people in difficult or dangerous situations. But at Barnabas Aid we believe our calling is to help especially the family of believers.
