On 17 July, Christians in Mosul, Iraq were given three choices by the Islamic militant group ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham).
1. Convert to Islam
2. Pay a protection tax
3. Leave before 19 July or be killed
In line with their demands, the ISIS systematically targeted known Christian homes in Mosul by painting on their walls the Arabic letter ‘N’, short for Nassarah, which means Christian.
Afraid for their lives, thousands have fled, taking only what they could carry.
Of 35,000 Christians living in Mosul, it is believed that few, if any, have remained.
We will provide Christians who have escaped Mosul with an emergency ‘N’ Life Pack containing a Bible and emergency relief items, including food.
Our goal is to raise $50,000 for these ‘N’ Life Packs for our persecuted brothers and sisters. This means we will provide 2,000 families with emergency relief!
