World Mandate Ministries to help unaccompanied children displaced by war

Clopton-based World Mandate Ministries is setting up a new ministry to help unaccompanied children displaced by war in the Middle East. CHOCS (Caring Homes for Orphaned Children). “Over 10,000 unaccompanied child refugees have disappeared since arriving in Europe. This needs to be the church’s finest hour, showing the world that’s approved by religion that’s approved by God (James 1:27). CHOCS is currently embryonic and is investigating all the avenues available to offer care and help to the refugee children. If this strikes a chord in your heart and you would like to know how you can help, support or be involved, please visit
