The Assyrian Initiative

As IS continues to take territory across Libya, Egypt, Syria and Iraq in its pursuit of an Islamic Caliphate, the Christians of Assyria are struggling to survive as a people, a faith and a nation. Our Assyrian Project seeks to support the Assyrian people in Iraq in their struggle to protect their families, homes and homeland from brutal extinction. With timely support in the areas of security, governance and development, the Assyrian people will not only be able to halt and push back the threat from IS, but also establish a political presence in Iraq, thus strengthening their hold on their traditional homeland and its vast resources.
