Our Story

The American Foundation for Relief & Reconciliation in the Middle East (FRRME America) was founded in 2009 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to promote reconciliation, provide relief efforts, advance human rights, and seek an end to sectarian violence in the Middle East. Although autonomous, FRRME America is closely associated with the Foundation for Relief & Reconciliation in the Middle East, a UK-registered charity founded in 2005.

FRRME America provides humanitarian assistance, health care and education to those who have fled persecution and genocide, including Christians, Yazidis, Shabak and others throughout the Middle East and supports the operations and outreach efforts of St. George’s Anglican Church in Baghdad, Iraq. We are also working to rebuild lives and restore hope through advocacy and long-term investment in the region.

Iraqi refugees in Jordan enjoy a celebratory rooftop meal with FRRME America staff and board members. We provide rent assistance, food vouchers, clothing vouchers and more to those who have fled violence.
