Emergency Relief for Iraqi Christians

On 17 July, Christians in Mosul, Iraq were given three choices by the Islamic militant group ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham).

1. Convert to Islam

2. Pay a protection tax

3. Leave before 19 July or be killed
In line with their demands, the ISIS systematically targeted known Christian homes in Mosul by painting on their walls the Arabic letter ‘N’, short for Nassarah, which means Christian.
Modern-day Exodus

Afraid for their lives, thousands have fled, taking only what they could carry.
Of 35,000 Christians living in Mosul, it is believed that few, if any, have remained.
How can you help?

We will provide Christians who have escaped Mosul with an emergency ‘N’ Life Pack containing a Bible and emergency relief items, including food.

You can help by supporting Voice of the Martyrs Australia with your donation to supply a Special Emergency ‘N’ Life Pack for $25.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 for these ‘N’ Life Packs for our persecuted brothers and sisters. This means we will provide 2,000 families with emergency relief!

Please partner with us and be ‘bound with them’ by donating to this emergency appeal
