Erbil and Mosul, Iraq
When ISIS captured Mosul in June of 2014, we began raising funds for the immediate survival needs of displaced Christians relegated to unspeakable living conditions in Erbil. By 2016, we had raised over $100,000.00 for the ministry of the Iraqi Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena, refugees themselves, who were caring for their fellow Christians, spiritually and materially, as much as conditions and contributions allowed. Since the take-back of Mosul in October 2017, we have also been assisting the sisters who have chosen to move back with fellow refugees, intent on rebuilding their homes, schools, hospitals, and community. We hope and pray that our support continues to help alleviate the suffering and the constant fear imposed upon those returning home as well as those who remain displaced.
