In these difficult times we have more hopeful news from Iraq, where Nasarean has now helped multiple businesses, giving Christians who were persecuted new hope and a chance for the future. Through your generosity, we were recently able to help several businesses, and we will have more news over the next weeks. This week we highlight the farm of Waseem Farage, in Qaraqosh, which ISIS occupied in August, 2014. Waseem and his family are farming corn, vegetables, wheat and barley, and will have some sheep and calves. Due to the intense drought Iraq has suffered over the last 2 years, many farmers are having to dig wells for irrigation. You can see pictured the equipment. We are also supporting some businesses in the very far North of Iraq, in the Dohuk region - our first is the electrical repair shop of Evan Fahmi in Daoidia, pictured in his small shop. Once more, your help is keeping Christians in their ancient homeland - without jobs there is no hope of a future!
