BENEFITING: ASSYRIAN AID SOCIETY OF AMERICA
Everyday, people in Iraq spend their days not knowing if it will be their last day. Since the fall of Saddam in 2003, Assyrian Christians and other minorities in Iraq have been increasingly targeted by kidnappings, bombings, theft and assassinations. But the latest push by ISIS into the Nineveh plains, drove out Assyrians from their ancestral homes and left these families with nowhere to go. Assyrian Christians, Yazidis, and other religious and ethnic minorities are among the 1.2 million Iraqis displaced by conflict and targeted persecution since January, according to United Nations. People arrive with sunburn and sunstroke from being exposed out in the open for so long. They are dehydrated, hungry and incredibly tired.
The Assyrian Aid Society of America is a charitable 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping Assyrians and Christian minorities in need since 1991 and is officially recognized by the United Nations and U.S Aid.
