To Provide Relief: The Iraqi Christian Relief Council
Launched in 2007, The Iraqi Christian Relief Council (ICRC) was founded by Juliana Taimoorazy, a Christian who was herself driven from her home in Iran by Islamic extremists in 1989. Juliana and her team at the ICRC have committed to taking on the responsibility of humanitarian relief for the thousands of Assyrian Christians in Iraq who have suffered for centuries at the hands of Islamic terrorists. If you want to purely and simply provide “Beans and Blankets”, ICRC is specific geographically to where Echo 612 operates.
To Build the Future: Restore Nineveh Now Foundation
Launched in 2014 by David William Lazar, a longtime Assyrian activist, the Restore Nineveh Now Foundation (RNNF) exists to establish a safe zone and future province in Iraq for the religious and ethnic peoples terrorized by ISIS.
The region in north-western Iraq, the Nineveh Plains, has for thousands of years been the home of the Assyrians, Christians and the original Iraqis. For centuries, the Assyrians have endured persecution at the hands of Islamic terrorists like ISIS.
Enough is enough. Working in Washington DC, through the United Nations and with a number of foreign governments, The Restore Nineveh Now Foundation is mobilizing the international community to establish and support a homeland for Christians and other persecuted peoples in Iraq.
