The Middle East is in chaos. In Iraq, tens of thousands of Christians are among the more than 1.2 million people forced to flee for their lives by the brutally violent militant group, Islamic State. The UN recently designated the situation a Level Three Emergency—the most severe possible rating for a humanitarian disaster.
From nearby Turkey, the media recently relayed heartbreaking images of dead Syrian refugee children washing up on tourist beaches, shocking the western world.
Everyone is asking what can be done to address this tragedy.
Samaritan's Purse is reaching out with the love of Christ to those who’ve run from Islamic State’s “convert-to-our-version-of-Islam-or-die” threats, and who desperately need food, shelter, water, and medical care.

Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi refugees have sought refuge in the Kurdistan region, where we have a field office and where churches in the Kurdish capital of Erbil are partnering with us in welcoming and caring for refugees. We’ve set up hundreds of tents for displaced families and provided over 14,000 people with food. We’ve also distributed mattresses, cribs, baby clothes, shoes, pillows, and Bibles, not only in Iraq but other states in the region.
Your financial support and prayers are urgently needed for us to continue ministering in Jesus’Name to suffering families in the Middle East.
