Northern Iraq Rebuilds

As ISIS has now been driven from the area, Christian families in the Plains of Nineveh are eager to return to their homes and churches. But, they need our help to repair damage, replace doors, windows, and fixtures, and paint over ISIS graffiti as they reclaim their towns in the Name of Jesus. Thanks to the gifts and prayers of people like you, Samaritan’s Purse is helping Christian families move back home so that this region will once again be a light for the Gospel in the heart of the Middle East. Through a variety of additional projects in other parts of Iraq, we also continue to help meet the long-term physical and spiritual needs of impoverished families whose lives have been disrupted by violence over the past several years.
