Iraqi insurgency creates disaster

By June 20, 2014

TurkeyIraqIraq (ODM) — In 2003, there were a million Iraqi Christians. Today, there are less than 345,000… and hundreds more have been forced to flee due to the violence. The rising influence of radical Islam has accounted for increased attacks specifically against Christians. These Iraqi believers are joining the ranks of countless other Christian refugees from countries like Central African Republic, Syria, and North Korea.

Many of these Christians have been forced to flee from their homes and have nothing but the clothes on their backs. Some refugee women, like those in Central African Republic, have even been victims of rape because they do not have a safe place to stay.

Open Doors is working with refugees from Iraq, Syria, and other countries to support their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Join them in bringing restoration to these Christian communities, keeping these Christian refugees safe and alive.
