LOVE FOR THE LEAST: MIDDLE EAST
Bringing immediate relief and building long-term solutions for IDPs and Refugees in Northern Iraq
After a decade of political instability and brutal persecution in 2014 at the hand of Islamic extremism, these families have been driven away from their land, out of their homes, cities, jobs, churches and their very way of life. With no where to flee, some are housed in camps; some in tent villages, and some absorobed into the local communites.
2,000 Years of Christianity
NAMES LIKE UR, EDEN, AND NINEVAH CONNECT US TO THIS BIBLICALLY SIGNIFICANT LAND. THE APOSTLES THOMAS AND THADDEUS CARRIED THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST WITH THEM AS THEY WALKED THIS GROUND IN THE FIRST CENTURY.
NOW, 2000 YEARS LATER, RATHER THAN FLEE THE LAND, MANY CHRISTIANS CHOOSE TO REMAIN AND REBUILD, LIVING OUT THE CALL TO BE THE REMNANT OF CHRISTIANITY IN THE VERY LAND WHERE IT BEGAN.
The political problem is complex, but the humanitarian problem is simple: Our forgotten brothers and sisters need relief for today and hope for tomorrow, and the option of living in this land they have always known.
