ICIN is saddened by the passing of Mrs Birtha Saleem Jarjis Amso. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family. May she rest in peace.
The crisis situation of refugees in Iraq continues, on the one hand, with ongoing tales of hardship and deprivation and, on the other, with the love shown towards its needy Christians by many people in the world and not least in the UK. Donations to ICIN continue almost daily and we are grateful to all of you our supporters everywhere for your continued generosity. We are particularly grateful to those who responded so generously to the Appeal by St John's in Notting Hill: £100,000 was collected and is being channelled through ICIN for the relief of Iraqi Christians who fled Mosul and the Nineveh plains.
Due to the tragic events that followed the occupation of the Nineveh plain, the inhabitants of all the Christian villages are now refugees in Ankawa and Dhok. At least a hundred thousand people are homeless and in dire need of help for basic needs such as water, food and shelter (read full post for latest photos from Ankawa.com). We renew our plea to you, our supporters, to help in this on-going humanitarian crisis.
Please give generously by donating online using the form below, or by cheque made payable to ICIN.
Thank you for your generosity.
ICIN is pleased to announce that Carl Bahoshy will be giving Organ and Piano recitals at various venues over the coming months. Unless otherwise stated, 90% of the net proceeds of ticket sales and funds raised will be donated to ICIN with the other 10% donated to the host church.
ICIN gratefully acknowledges Carl's contribution to its various causes and will be regularly updating this website with the schedule below for news of upcoming concerts. Your support is, as always, kindly requested, and your attendance at any of these events much appreciated.
Sincere thanks to all of you who responded and are still responding to our Mosul appeal. The events since last June have been truly tragic and we pray that the international community is inspired to act for the protection and support of Christian and other minorities in the area.

Part of Iraq Christian heritage: some churches and monasteries in Mosul and the surrounding area, most of which are currently occupied by ISIS.
A large crowd of Iraqi Christians and Supporters gathered in front of the Parliament Building last Saturday 26 July 2014 in an act of solidarity with the indigenous Christian communities of Mosul.
In solidarity with our suffering brothers and sisters of Mosul, the Eastern Iraqi churches led by the Syrian Orthodox Archbishop Toma Dawood, Syrian Catholic Monsignor Nizar Semaan, Chaldean Catholic Father Nadheer, Ancient Church of the East Corepiscopos (Khoury) Fr Dr Khoshaba, Eastern Assyrian Father Tony and others are joining forces together with their communities and supporters from all parts of Britain in a demonstration in London on Saturday 26th July 2014.
