Refugee Relief

Reaching the Refugees with the Love of Christ

Millions in the Middle East have been forced to uproot their lives, leaving behind everything safe and familiar. In search of peace, masses of people are fleeing areas of terror where religious extremist groups are committing mass public executions and torture and using chemical weapons.

Bulgaria in the Refugee Crisis

Bulgaria became a member of the European Union in 2007. Geographically, it shares a border with Turkey and serves as the land connection between the Middle East and the European Union, making Bulgaria the first point of entry by road for refugees escaping into Europe.

Refugees from many nations become detainees in camps which have popped up all over the country. The crisis is real in Bulgaria as this massive wave of humanity reaches its borders.

A Refugee Outreach is Born: The Ali Dini Story

Ali is a former Muslim from Iran. As a young man, he was an army ambulance driver during the Holy War between Iraq and Iran. The horrors of war left him hopeless. For years, Ali was deeply involved in the criminal underworld, operating from the Middle East to England. Eventually, he was caught, convicted, and imprisoned in Bulgaria. That’s when his life changed through an encounter with Jesus!

Today, Ali leads outreach teams visiting refugee camps to bring meals, humanitarian relief, and Bibles to many people. Most importantly, he introduces them to the Gospel.

Currently, Bridge of Intersection is reaching refugees by partnering with Ali Dini and local ministry teams. Ali’s amazing story is now available in English for purchase.

Conditions in Refugee Camps

Many refugees arrive with only one backpack and no means to provide for themselves. They are directed to the refugee camps in Bulgaria by border police where they await legal documents necessary to journey onward to Western Europe. This can mean weeks, months, even years of waiting in desperate, deplorable, prison-like conditions.
