Iraq

Iraq is an ancient country whose deep roots are currently being shaken by political unrest, violence and suffering

Iraq is considered the birthplace of humanity and was likely the ancient home of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. However, the nation’s illustrious past stands in stark contrast to current political unrest and ongoing violence. 

In response to the current crisis, OM has launched a relief project that is currently being implemented in the Near East Field, helping thousands of people from Christian, Yazidi and Muslim backgrounds, with basic food aid, hygiene kits, along with mattresses and blankets to help with immediate needs.  

Pray for the many families who have been forced to leave their homes and are seeking shelter in temporary accommodations, many of which are unsuitable for winter conditions. Pray for comfort for those living in a climate of fear and uncertainty.  Pray that OM workers would be able to establish effective relief systems and find open doors to spread the hope of Jesus amongst people who are suffering emotionally and physically.
