Iraqi Christians in Need

I received this by email and thought it worth sharing.

ICIN was founded in 2007 in Thames Ditton, south-west London, by a community of Iraqi Christian family friends to address the medical, educational and financial needs of displaced Christians within Iraq, Syria and Jordan. Now the focus is mainly on northern Iraq, in Erbil and Ankawa, where there are currently some 8970 Christian refugee families scattered throughout churches, schools, parks and abandoned buildings, thankfully being cared for by the Catholic and Syriac churches. There are plans to construct and secure permanent shelters for families in view of the imminent freezing winter months and there is, understandably, a significant financial need. A direct online link that outlines the current situation in greater detail is here:-
