Help Iraqi Christians return to their homes

June 10, 2017 marked the third anniversary of the fall of Mosul to ISIS forces, who killed and looted their way through the city. Christians were told to convert to Islam or leave, abandoning their homes and possessions. On Aug. 6, 2014, ISIS swept across the Nineveh plains, forcing 120,000 Christians to flee overnight to Erbil, Kurdistan. Your support has helped care for them ever since.

Today, ISIS is on the run and the Nineveh plains have already seen the return of hundreds of Christian families. Please join in supporting the rebuilding of the nine Christian towns and villages on the Nineveh plains. The faithful of Iraq need your prayers and sacrifice.

Thank you and God bless you.


Please Help God's Faithful in South Sudan

In the last three years, more than 50,000 have died and nearly 2.5 million people have been forced from their homes.

With your support, Aid to the Church in Need is helping, in particular, the youngest victims of violence by funding Church programs like the House of Hope, started by The Missionaries of the Divine Word in the Parish of Lainya, where youth can play, learn to work as a team and do their homework.

Thank you and God bless you for any amount you can give today.
