Podcast with pastor and humanitarian Eugene Cho

Pastor and humanitarian Eugene Cho visited Syrian refugee tented settlements in Lebanon and Iraq with World Vision.

This edition of the World Vision podcast features a conversation with Eugene Cho, pastor of Quest Church in Seattle. Cho also is the co-founder of One Day’s Wages, a grassroots humanitarian organization that is partnering with World Vision around the refugee crisis in the Middle East.

Cho, author of the book Overrated, recently traveled with World Vision to Iraq and Lebanon and was interviewed following a visit to refugee tent settlements near the Syrian border.

March 2018 marks the seventh anniversary of the Syrian refugee crisis, one of the worst humanitarian crises in modern history. Coinciding with this anniversary, One Day’s Wages is coming alongside World Vision to raise $200,000 for World Vision’s refugee response in the Middle East. One Day’s Wages will match donations, up to $100,000, to its refugee campaign through the end of March.

 The podcast episode also features music from Philadelphia musician — and actual church sexton — Dan Stevens.
