The Oasis, Traiskirchen, Austria

The Oasis aims to be an international team partnering with churches, both locally and globally, to walk alongside refugees, offering them the Living Water of Jesus Christ and moving with them toward an intimate relationship with Him and His people. We welcome refugees into the Oasis, our homes and our lives. We offer them a safe place where they can come and know they are welcome. We are moved to pray for and seek after God's provision for hope, food, shelter, clothing and other basic needs that the refugees have. We receive many donations of used clothing or items from locals, that we then give to refugees through a weekly clothing day and at other times as needed. Often the needs of refugees exceed donations and it is helpful when we are able to buy extra items to give. Thus at times we buy new underwear or other clothing, child prams, and sometimes luggage. Besides the Clothing Room, we also have programs throughout the week for refugees: Women and Children programs, Bible study, German class, Evangelistic Evening, and a Jesus Film night.

This year the funds raised would go towards: Bibles and other Christian literature in refugees' heart languages and Christmas presents for refugees.
