Our Current Projects

Campaign "Aid for Ninevites"

Recently, there has been a rise of terror attacks in Iraq. In a series of blasts, more than 100 lives were lost in just one day. Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) with links to AL-Qaeda has reported that they are re-organized and stronger than ever.

 

Amidst all these explosions and uncertainty, the Iraqi Christians who had fled for their lives to Syria, once again are faced with forced migration. This time out of Syria, back to dangers of Iraq.

 

There was a plea for help announced by the President of the Assyrian Aid Society of Iraq, Mr. Ashur Eskrya, informing us that 4000 to 5000 Christian families are expected to return to Iraq.

 

These families need our financial help. They need food and shelter.

 

We ask you to pray for their safety and wellbeing. We also ask for your generosity.

Empowering Widows

In partnership with St. Catherine of Siena Dominican Order in Northern Iraq, we plan to empower Iraqi Christian widows by creating self sustainability opportunities.

 

There are approximately 1000 widows who are in danger of losing their children to orphanages because they are unable to support their families.
