Update on Wassim in Qaraqosh

Sadly, as many of you know, we had to temporarily suspend our help in Syria due to the great difficulty of transferring money safely. Due to a new cooperation with the great French charity, SOS Chretiens, which works in 7 countries so far, we will soon be able to resume help and, God willing, to start supporting family businesses in Egypt. We are immediately making a large donation to SOS to help victims of the earthquake in Syria, which is receiving very little, due to the unjust unilateral sanctions. The good news this week, following Fr. Ben’s recent visit to Iraq, is the success of Wassim’s farm in Quaraqosh, which ISIS devastated from 2014 until 2017. With your help, he was able to dig a well - and has turned the brown soil of three years of drought into the green fields of life! This is truly one of our most encouraging - and almost biblical projects - water bringing life, hope and a future to Wassim and his family. Amidst so much despair - little signs of hope for families to stay and have a future!
