Meet Chandra and Dan Brissette: they lived in Damascus, Syria, while working with the Foreign Service from 2002 to 2004.
In today’s Q&A, they talk about how much they loved pre-war Syria, why they were inspired last fall to help refugees of the Syrian crisis — by starting a fundraiser for socks! — and their hopes for Syria’s tomorrow.

In April of 1994, after decades of tension between the Tutsi and Hutu ethnic groups, the assassination of Rwanda’s Hutu president sparked the massacre of an estimated 800,000 people in a Hutu attempt to wipe out the minority Tutsi population. The genocide began in Rwanda’s capital of Kigali and quickly spread within the country, forcing millions to flee as refugees to neighboring countries.
The genocide ended 100 days later in July when the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RFP) took over Kigali. They remain the political party in power today.
Three World Vision staff members who spent time in Rwanda during and just after the genocide give their testimonies—stories of unbelief at the inhumanity, but also of how the 20-year transition to peace and forgiveness is “beyond human comprehension.”
When we talk about crisis—conflict, sickness, hunger—let’s tell the whole story: one that includes our response to what God is calling us to do in the face of hardship, knowing that in the end there can be courage, hope, and love.
See how World Vision is part of the whole story, and how we can be #GreaterTogether.
