We help the most vulnerable Middle East Assyrian Christians

  • Last year, ICRC directly aided 110,000 persecuted Christians in the Middle East, in countries such as Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan
  • 90 percent of the Christians we aid are victims of ISIS, and 100 percent of our beneficiaries have faced extreme religious persecution in their homelands
  • ICRC helps some of the most vulnerable victims of ISIS—young children and adults who suffer from debilitating diseases such as cancer and stroke
  • When persecuted Christians are at their most vulnerable, ICRC provides assistance in the form of shelter, food and medical care
  • During the winter, ICRC provides Christians with housing, winter clothing, heaters and essential food to survive the coldest months of the year
  • ICRC helps vulnerable Assyrian Christians refugees who have been resettled in the United States and France with food and rent

Put aside our differences and unite

Thousands of Assyrian Christian families have been displaced through religious persecution and ethnic cleansing. Many have fled in hopes to migrate to safer locations and someday a number of these families will return back to Iraq to find broken homes and hearts. These victims have been abused, tortured and are tired of running. Hope is hard to find.

This deeply rooted issue is overwhelming, but that’s why we invite you to put aside all faith based differences and unite to assist our Christian brothers and sisters in Iraq and the Middle East, in countries like Syria and Jordan. We will not remain silent.

With your support we’ve already helped thousands–and now we invite you to join us as we support the plight of Assyrian Christians in Iraq through our programs:

Humanitarian relief

We provide urgent, life-saving supplies to Christians in Iraq through our network on the ground.

Advocacy

We are a voice for persecuted Christians in Iraq and those who have arrived in the U.S. who have little to no support system.

Education

We provide education on the region’s history, current crisis, and how you can play a role in the solution.

Prayer movement

We facilitate a movement of prayer among Western Christians on behalf of our brothers and sisters in Iraq.
