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.

Iraq's Christian Heritage

August 8, 2014 at 00:22

Part of Iraq Christian heritage: some churches and monasteries in Mosul and the surrounding area, most of which are currently occupied by ISIS.

Churches in Mosul.jpg

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.

The aim of the demonstration was to bring awareness of the situation in Iraq to the British people and to the world. The short and long term implications of the genocide of the Christians in a part of the world, where Christianity was born, are extremely serious and the issue needs to be dealt with urgently.

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.
