Now, there are less than 500,000 Christians in Iraq, when we were more than 1,5 million in the early 2000’s.
This is when we knew, as a church, we could not turn a blind eye and we had to try to help as much as we could. So we started the relief assistance for all groups we were able to reach, regardless of their background or religion.
The displaced families there were from Sunni background, and entering those camps and seeing all this misery made us realize that Muslims are victims of ISIS, just like us. And they need God’s love and comfort, just like we do. We believe we have been showing them a little bit of God’s love through the food boxes.
