Iraq: Nineveh and surrounding Christian areas have been ethnically cleansed. Churches have been destroyed and desecrated.
Old Christian religious manuscripts have been burnt. Hundreds of thousands of Christians and others have become emigrants and immigrants.
The sick, elderly, infants, and pregnant women among them are facing human catastrophe and risk of real genocide.
They need basic water, food, shelter, medicine, and others.
The situation is going from bad to worse. International humanitarian support is lagging behind. Please help us save these innocent people from death.
We hope it is not too late.
-His Beatitude Patriarch Louis Raphael Sako, Chaldean Patriarch of Babylon--8/7/2014
