Our mission is to educate the people around the globe about Iraqi Christian persecution, ask for prayers, and raise funds to support their basic humanitarian needs and partake in rebuilding their lives.
Our Current Struggle:
The Christians of the Middle East have faced genocide and massacres in a systematic and organized manner for centuries. They have faced the Kurdish Muslim sword starting 1843, followed by the Turkish genocide of the Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks until the modern times, falling to the savagery of the Islamic State.
In this century alone, the Assyrians, Chaldeans and Syriac nation, indigenous to Iraq not only lost control of their ancestral land, they have also lost over three-fourth of their pre-World War I population.
Today, they stand at a crossroad of history.
Some of the dangers of the Iraqi Christian persecution and it's people face:
They have suffered through kidnappings, beheadings, rape, plunder, total economic loss.
Isn’t time for them to be really heard and assisted in the most serious and expedient manner?
“Even at the point of death, we will not renounce Christ.”
Noor and her family were chased away from their home and are now living in Amman, Jordan as a result of Iraqi Christian Persecution.
For the past 12 years, we have helped with Iraqi Christian persecution, the individuals and families who have been persecuted carry the Cross.
