Operation Compassion Is Helping Iraqi Christians

By , March 11, 2015

Through a recent partnership with a new non-profit agency, Operation Compassion is able to ship product into Iraq, more specifically, into the city of Erbil. Erbil is located about 55 miles east of Mosul and has a permanent population of about 1.5 million. Erbil is also the largest and the capital city of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Erbil, as a city, dates back to 6000 BC.

Our new partner has been working with displaced Christian refugees for centuries and is the oldest continuing Christian community which can trace its beginnings to St. Thomas, one of the 12 Disciples. More recently, they have been assisting the Christians that have fled from Mosul and other towns.

Operation Compassion has partnered with this agency for two basic reasons: first, they are helping Christians survive and escape from an enemy that indiscriminately kills; second, they have an impeccable history of survival and success in the face of dire enemies.

Recently, inventories were hand selected for maximum impact for the survivors that have become refugees. Clothing, shoes, health products, hygiene products, OTC medications, blankets, sleeping bags, diapers and other vital supplies are in process for shipping.

In addition to our new partnership in Iraq, Operation Compassion is also sending 27,000 pairs of shoes to Syria to help the people fleeing the civil unrest that has been going on for some time.

Operation Compassion is reaching the world. Will you join us? With your help, there is no limit to the assistance that Operation Compassion can offer!
