When Daesh (ISIS) extremists committed genocide, there were fears it could spell the end of almost 2,000 years of continuous Christian presence in Iraq.
But – thanks to you – a miracle of love has taken place.

Pope Francis was, at the time of writing, due to visit Iraq in March 2021.
“I think constantly of Iraq,” the Pope has said. “We must ensure that the Christian presence in these lands continues to be… a sign of peace, progress, development and reconciliation between individuals and peoples.”
