Mark Burnett, Roma Downey Launch $25 Million Plan To Help Christians in Iraq and Syria

Christianity Today reports today that, in the streets of Irbil, Christians are everywhere: on the streets, in abandoned buildings, in canvas tents that are not water-proof or winterized.  Having survived eradication by terror groups, they now might die naturally from the coming harsh winter.

Mark Burnett and Roma Downey are raising $25 million and partnering with King Abdullah of Jordan, a Muslim king, to help Iraqi and Syrian Christians (as well as other minorities) displaced by ISIS survive the coming winter. They’ve already donated the first $1 million toward a refugee crisis compared to the Rwanda genocide.

King Abdullah II meets with regional and international Christian leaders.

Having fled their home with nothing but the clothes on their backs, and having seen unspeakable things, these brothers and sisters in Christ are severely traumatized, mostly without shelter.

Things are very urgent. Winter is coming. This week’s rain will soon be snow.

Please keep our brothers and sisters in the Middle East in your hearts and prayers.

Contributions can be made directly to their “Cradle of Christianity Fund“, which is being administered by the Institute for Global Engagement (IGE), a leader on international religious freedom issues which primarily works in east Asia.
