operation refugee Africa NPC
Operation refugee is a YWAM Christian ministry aiming to give refugees who have fled from war torn countries a new opportunity in life. We aim to do this by mobilising funds to place those that applied for a Discipleship Trainings School (DTS) in YWAM out of their refugee camp and into the various locations they applied for. By sponsoring their education we seek to help them to help themselves. We believe in intelligent compassion.
THE MISSION STATEMENT
We are going to do this by running a funding campaign amongst Christian churches and individuals, bringing information and understanding about the plight of the refugees as legitimate victims of violence, political unrest and war. By setting up a fund that is solely used for refugees we plan to pay for their lecture phase and help them with the legitimate papers for the UN, transport and placing into chosen YWAM bases worldwide. In this way we provide healing, education, opportunity and a new chance in life for those that are legitimate victims of war and that are talented, eager and willing to help themselves if given the opportunity.
Today’s refugee crisis is the biggest in history as 60,000,000 people all over the world are currently displaced. As we can mobilise everybody we will be able to use this golden opportunity to disciple the nations . Please pray about this and hear from the Holy Spirit.

Our First two sponsored DTS students - Malawi
“We are Tresor Mpenzi and Jimmy Ntwali from DRC living in Malawi as refugee in a refugee camp from 2012.
Life in camp is really hard that is not easy to be in a good relationship with God but we thank God that he didn't let us down. The other good side of the camp is that some people because of the badness of life choose to seek God
We had a habit of praying but really in sense of following the movement (YWAM)but God kept on revealing himself to us in different ways.
It was in April that we met a team of YWAM from South Africa in their outreach in the camp. they explained us what is YWAM and how it works and ask us to join the movement if we were interested. Most of people around 50 candidates including ourselves registered to join the movement but there was a big challenge to every body: paying the school fees. But the leader Mr Wikus promised that with God they will see what to do.
I don't know for really what they did but I can guess a fund rising and get some money for only two guys to join DTS in YWAM Blantyre . luck enough the two of us were chosen among others and now we are in Blantyre.
It started on 26/08 we are a class of 25 students.
God is doing big things with us and we are looking forward to what is next.
How I wish for my friends who have that passion of joining YWAM for knowing God and make him known to get such a sponsorship them too so they may meet God and serve him.
I hope to have our outreach fees to be payed too to experience God gift in us and make him known.
God bless every body involved in this project.
In Jesus name Amen.”
