Christians continue to suffer persecution throughout the world, but especially in the Middle East; the Aid to the Church in Need is announcing a series of emergency programs.
"The Catholic charity group Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) has announced a series of emergency relief programs for beleaguered Christians in Iraq and Syria as winter takes hold in the region.
"According to ACN, 19 relief programs will be launched in Syria, while 11 will be launched in Iraq. The programs will provide food, medicine, shelter, and pastoral support to the Christian communities in those countries. Some of the programs include building a nursery school in Erbil, Iraq, for Christian refugees; providing financial aid to 182 displaced Christians in Kirkuk, Iraq; and providing food and other basic needs to 4,500 families in Homs, Syria."--JNS via Breaking Israel News
