Speak up for Noeh

Bring hope to the Middle East

Noeh is 12. He’s from a town in Iraq called Karamles. Like many people that once lived there, his family are Christians. Back in 2014, the so called Islamic State (IS), a violent extremist group, invaded his town. Everyone fled.

Since then, Noeh and his family have lived in a city called Erbil, it’s in a safer part of northern Iraq. They are displaced, receiving all kinds of help from Open Doors partners.

Towards the end of 2016, IS retreated and left Karamles. But Noeh and his family can’t go home. IS soldiers set fire to his house. Nearly 450 homes in the town were burned, 100 or so were completely destroyed.

Noeh’s house is still standing. He can walk around the charred remains of his bedroom. He even found some of his old marbles that survived the fire. But for now, for Noeh, and many others from Karamles, the journey home is just beginning.

Our family in the Middle East are facing incredible challenges. There is war and terror, extremism and hatred. But many Christians remain. And Jesus is building His church. Scroll down for three simple ways you can support your family in the Middle East now…

The church in the Middle East is threatened with destruction. As Christians, we cannot stand by and remain silent; it is time to speak up.

Since the birth of Christ, Christians have been integral to the Middle East. And they are vital for its future. But, they continue to face targeted violence and persecution. We cannot stand by while Christians and others in the Middle East face unprecedented threat. We must give them hope.

Therefore we are calling on the UN Secretary General to ensure the following for Christians and other religious groups:

Equal citizenship

Dignified living conditions

Support for the role of Christians in reconciliation and rebuilding society
