The Chairman’s Report for February 15, 2019

Diapers for Refugees program continues to fill a critical need / Still no consistent power for Qaraqosh and other Christian towns / Tens of thousands of Iraqi Christians in Jordan can’t return to Iraq /The horrid plight on Christians in a no-mans land between Israel and Jordan

Two Million Diapers in 2019

More help is needed for Christian families on the Biblically important Nineveh Plain — not less. This is why the Diapers for Refugees program is so important. Every dollar’s worth of diapers we can furnish to families in need is one more dollar they have to rebuild their shattered lives.

One Million Diapers in 2018

The supporters of the Religious Freedom Coalition propelled the Diapers for Refugees project to a record number of Christian families in Iraq and Jordan. In all, over one million diapers were delivered to Christian families in need during 2018. But these families still need our help!

The Chairman’s Report for January 21, 2019

First Christmas party for isolated Christian children in Bethlehem / First Christmas events for displaced Christian children in Syria / Most events ever for Christmas for Refugees in Jordan – Both Iraqi and Syrian / First Diaper distributions in Jordan for the Diapers for Refugees program

Christmas for Refugees First Year in Syria

Most of the children were either orphans or internally displaced children who had undergone all kinds of trauma. It had been quite some time since these children had access to such a nice, warm and healthy meal. One thing that really stood out from the first event was the very evident joy on the faces of all ages, regardless of the tragedies they had endured.

Christmas for Refugees Events in Jordan

A number of Christmas for Refugees events were held in Jordan this year. At one of the Christmas parties, every single one of the children present was from Iraq. In Qaraqosh the party lasted almost four hours, with different types of entertainment and of course all pointing to the real reason for Christmas, the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Christmas in the West Bank

The Christian population in Bethlehem is no longer self-sustaining. It is with that understanding that Christmas for Refugees agreed to hold a Christmas party for 800 Christian children still living in the Bethlehem and Beit Sahour area, to bring some joy to the shrinking Christian population.

Christmas for Refugees in Iraq

The first Christmas for Refugees Christmas party was held on December 14 in Qaraqosh and had 546 children in attendance. In all, more than 1,500 children attended the three events held this year in Iraq. Every event was centered on Jesus, from coloring contests to puppet shows.

Christmas Events Begin in Middle East

The Christmas program for 2018 will serve nearly 10,000 children. There were four Christmas events for children the first week of December. Of those four, two were held by brand new churches founded by Syrian refugees. Christmas programs are directed differently in Lebanon because of the sheer number of events and the distances between them.

YES! We Will Have a Christmas Program in Syria This Year

This year, about 1,000 children will have a full Christmas program in Syria including a hot meal and gifts. The children are not officially refugees but are what is referred to as “displaced persons,” a person who is still in their native country but has been forced out of their home by war.

$100,000 sent to Middle East for Christmas programs!

Christmas in the Middle East! Over $100,00 wired to Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq in October and $200,000 more in November to provide Christmas events for Christian children. A special program doubles all gifts to the Christmas for Refugees program made in November. More children can be provided a Christmas!
