Captiol Hill Action for Iraqi Christians

ACTION TO ASSIST IRAQI CHRISTIANS - This week former Governor David Beasley of South Carolina visited Washington to talk with congressional leaders about the plight of Iraqi Christians. Traveling with Governor Beasley was a representative of the Religious Freedom Coalition's ministry partner in Amman, Jordan. Together the two men made the case that the United States must have an official policy toward the religious minorities in Iraq, something that was not done under Secretary of State Rice during the Bush Administration. In addition to one-on-one meetings, Governor Beasley spoke at several meetings to leaders of social conservative organizations who may be able to assist Iraqi Christian refugees. Our ministry partner returned to Jordan with about $48,000 in contributed medical supplies. Please help!

FACEBOOK FOR IRAQI CHRISTIANS - The Religious Freedom Coalition also has a Facebook page to expose the crisis faced by Iraqi Christians. If you have a Facebook account, please become our friend at this link.

Help Iraqi Christians at Facebook

This week Isam Ghattas who operates various ministries in Amman, Jordan is the guest of the Religious Freedom Coalition in Washington, DC. He will speak at various events while in Washington on the condition of Iraqi Christian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. His ministry partners with the Religious Freedom Coalition to assist Christian refugees who comprise 44% of all refugees from Iraq although representing only 4% of the overall population.

Our Iraqi Christian refugee cause also now has a Facebook page. If you have a Facebook account you can join our cause as a member. Click here to see our Facebook page. You can also contribute funds for new MAP medical kits which contain 700 treatments each for common ailments. The kits include antibiotics and other needed drugs. This past week we shipped two MAP kits to assist Iraqi Christians. Because the drugs are donated the cost per kit is only $250 for many thousands of dollars of materials. Click here to help.
