The Christians of Iraq have suffered since 2003 when AL-Qaeda and their affiliates started to target their lives. With the brutality perpetrated by ISIS starting in 2014, the remaining Christian community in Iraq became even more devastated.
As a result of years of suffering, these indigenous people whose Assyrian heritage dates back to millennia before Christ started to flee their homes for safety. The following is an approximate number of asylum seekers in the region:
The following conditions are what these asylum seekers face every day:

Will your family help provide them with food?
On average, the monthly cost of living in these countries is between $500 to $700 US dollars. Although this amount may seem large; however, we TOGETHER can ease their suffering.
If you choose to be a monthly donor at level $100 and above, we will assign a family to your donation specifically and will update you with pictures and their condition every quarter. We will send you a video, pictures and a written report on their living condition and their resettlement case.
WE TOGETHER can ease their suffering.
The families who are living away from their homes as asylum seekers have needed help for years.
We have been present in the lives of these refugees for many years and now we are grateful that you have opened your heart to them, also.
Because of your support, we will be able to ease the suffering of these victims one family at a time, one day at a time. Your generosity will enable them to have better food every day and will help them with their monthly rent. All of this gives the parents peace of mind which is priceless.
We are deeply honored to have a supporter like you who would show not just in word but action that you are a true ally of some of the world's most vulnerable believers in Christ.
