Refugees in Germany: UMCOR Response

Watch this video to learn how the United Methodist Committee on Relief has been responding to the influx of refugees in Germany.

Europe is currently immersed in its largest refugee crisis since the end of World War II, and many of the hundreds of thousands of refugees who've fled Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other war-torn lands are headed to Germany.

Rold Held is the United Methodist pastor in the small town of Messstetten, in southern Germany. In this video, he describes the impact that thousands of refugees have had on his community, and describes how people have responded calmly and compassionately to their new neighbors.
