From Baghdad to the Plain of Ninevah in Iraq, from Iraqi Kurdistan to Mt. Sinjar—wherever people have been persecuted for their beliefs, American FRRME is on the ground, providing food, clothing, shelter, education and more. Our teams can be found in UN camps, in churches, even in unfinished buildings, providing humanitarian assistance and hope to Christians and other religious minorities who have become Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the Middle East. We’ve fed and clothed tens of thousands and provided health care and education to those who’ve fallen through the system, and we work closely with St. George’s Anglican Church in Baghdad to help the poorest of the poor.
Our teams also partner with churches and other NGOs in Jordan and elsewhere, to provide assistance to Iraqi and Syrian refugees who have left everything behind and to help them to begin to rebuild their lives.
