The European Evangelical Alliance highlights the role of Greek evangelicals in their service to refugees. Portuguese political representatives and church leaders participated in a special event in Sintra (Portugal).

The work of the Greek evangelical churches serving refugees in Greece earned the 2016 Hope award, given by the European Evangelical Alliance (EEA). The award was presented in a special public event in the Olga Cadaval Cultural Centre of Sintra (Portugal).

Antonio Calaim, President of thePortuguese Evangelical Alliance, opened the evening welcoming the Deputy Minister of the Portuguese Government, Eduardo Cabrita, the Mayor of Sintra, Basilio Horta, and the former Justice Minister and Chairman of the Religious Liberty committee, Vera Jardim. “Our mission as Evangelical Alliance is to unite to act”, Calaim explained. He also reminded the audience that Jesus had called Christians to love each other so that the world would believe in God. “May we live for love, through love and loving others”, he said.
