This year, about 1,000 children will have a full Christmas program in Syria including a hot meal and gifts. The children are not officially refugees but are what is referred to as “displaced persons,” a person who is still in their native country but has been forced out of their home by war.

Christmas for Refugees in Syria!

Nearly 900,000 Syrians are expected to return to Syria in the next few months. The Christians are moving back to destroyed and looted homes and churches, just as they have in Iraq’s Nineveh Plain. 1,000 displaced Syrian Christians will have a real Christmas this year if we can raise the needed funds.

New playground for kids’ summer camp in Jordan

Aug 16th, 2018 | By

Christians are only six percent of the population and most Christian children are in the public schools where the study of Islam is mandatory. Only at their churches can Christian children talk and act like Christians. The Camp for Christian children we support was founded by a dear friend of mine more than 30 years ago.

The Christians of Qaraqosh and other towns simply call us “the diaper ministry.” We distribute diapers in six sizes from newborn to toddler. We fill a void that no other ministry is addressing. At the same time, our partner ministry reinforces the Gospel of hope through our Lord.

New Genocide In Nigeria

Aug 4th, 2018 | By

“In April, Fulani herdsmen attacked a group of Christians during Sunday mass, killing two priests and seventeen parishioners.  The same attackers then razed fifty homes belonging to Christians.  In fact, earlier in the year, on New Year’s Day, 72 people died at the hands of a Fulani attack.” Danger grows for Christians in Nigeria, a nation that at one time was nearly 100% Christian.

To help those Christian families most in need the program must be doubled from 160,000 diapers per quarter to 320,000 diapers per quarter, YES – The number sounds high but it is just six diapers per day for three months per child.

Diaper Program Forced to Expand in Iraq

At the request of the Diapers for Refugees ministry partner in Iraq, the number of diapers for infants and toddlers was increased and additional help was supplied for women’s needs and the elderly. The number of families returning to their burned-out homes in Qaraqosh and other Christian towns made the increase necessary, as some families who used to obtain diapers from other sources in the Erbil area can no longer do so. As a result, our costs in December increased from $18,000 to $23,475.
