At St George's Church in Baghdad, where our work began and where we are fully funding a health clinic, the congregation celebrated Easter amid worsening sectarian violence. On Good Friday a bomb went off in the city's Al-Maalef district killing two people and injuring four. Despite this, hundreds of people came to the church to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

As we celebrate Easter, we remember our brothers and sisters who daily suffer for their faith. Following the attack on the Coptic Church of Egypt on Palm Sunday, Father Boules George of St. Mark's Coptic Church, Cleopatra (Cairo, Egypt) gave a sermon which exemplified the message of Easter in its expression of God's Love and forgiveness. We hope you enjoy this marvellous short clip, and wish you much peace. The FRRME Team. ... See MoreSee Less

Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East shared Iraqi Christian Relief Council's photo.

Palm Sunday Service in Qaraqosh
The first Palm Sunday service was held yesterday in the Iraqi city of Qaraqosh since the expulsion of ISIS. This act of Christian witness was led by Yohanna Petros Mouche, Syrian Catholic Archbishop of Mosul.

Qaraqosh was the largest Christian populated city in Iraq. 50,000 Assyrian Christians fled from the city upon ISIS’s arrival. There is no indication of the 50,000 returning at this time. Most continue to live in rented accommodation in Kurdistan, supported by NGOs including FRRME. We pray for a will to make peace, and restoration and reconciliation to broken communities. Thank you for your continued precious support as FRRME seek to serve all those displaced by the sectarian conflict of Iraq, and bring relief, particularly this Eastertime.
