Giving hope to persecuted Christians since 1995

110 degrees, again. The heat in Iraq is brutal, and for many of the more than 150,000 Christians, and more than 3 million total Iraqis there is almost no escape.  The only shade is a tarp outside a church hall, or a corner inside an unfinished concrete block building, that begins to resemble an oven in the brutal summer heat. For those who are able to rent an apartment they are most often filled with two or three families, 10 to 15 people living on top of each other.

 

To bring relief to hundreds of these families, ICC has provided air coolers that make the elements more survivable for now. What the future holds for these families, when they can go home, how they will stay here, or where they will go next, no one knows. For now, we can remind them that they are not forgotten, they are not alone.
