Coming off of it’s exclusive premiere with Billboard.com, Hillsong United’s ‘Even When it Hurts’ will go towards a cause that has been on many hearts. A donation will be given to World Vision, an organization focusing on taking care of Syrian refugees.
While the song is up for a minimum donation of $.20, the band urges fans to donate directly to World Vision.
‘We are making the download available on our website — but humbly ask that you would consider donating an amount to the World Vision Syrian refugee fund,’ shares Joel Houston. ‘Together we are believing that our generosity, will ring even louder than our song, and will tangibly become the miracle to the desperate plight and prayers and of so many who have lost everything — It’s impossible to fathom the enormity of the crisis, and the turmoil people have been through, and are going through — forced to flee the oppression and war-ravaged-hell-on-earth they once called home, and the daunting uncertainty of all that is before them.’
World Vision will provide refugees with food, water and first aide.
