Displaced Iraqi Christian women receive diapers for their infants and toddlers, supplied by the Diapers for Refugees program

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.
