Providing Aid in Iraq for Christians and other persecuted minorities

01 September 2014

Anglican Aid has been conducting an appeal for people who have been persecuted by the IS forces which are forcing people to convert to Islam pay the tax or be killed. The response to this appeal has seen many giving to support people just like us but who are subject to persecution. 

It is a reasonable question to ask "How will you get support to these people?" which is what some people have asked us. The Anglican Church has a broad network and many would not know there is an Anglican Church in Baghdad, Iraq. Canon Andrew White has been the Vicar of Baghdad at St George's Cathedral for many years. He has established a charity called Foundation for Reconcilaition and Relief in Middle East (FRRME). You can go to Canon Andrew White  on Facebook and see updates posted regularly on support being provided to people fleeing IS persecution and how food, mattresses, water and other life giving aid is being distributed.

Anglican Aid primarily partners with Anglican churches throughout the world and has confidence that the money you donate reaches its intended recipients.

To learn more about Canon Andrew White and the work he does this video shows work in Baghdad. However please understand that the funds donated for this appeal are directed to people in Northern Iraq. We suggest you may wish to start at about 2.20 minutes
