Our festive season update continues with our children’s Christmas concert in Kirkuk, Iraq. Over 100 families were joined by esteemed Assyrian singer and chorister Suaad Elias for a day of hymns, carols and celebration.

Ms. Elias expressed her joy at participating in such a great event and her heartfelt thanks to ACERO for hosting it. She led the concert with some beautiful performances along with the church choir. She also sang alongside the children and encouraged them to sing to their very best.

Each child was given a gift for Christmas and for their participation whilst their families gathered to watch and celebrate with them.

We in turn take this opportunity to thank Ms. Elias for giving her time to support ACERO and to put a smile on the children’s faces. We also thank our Iraq chapter committees for their continued hard work and commitment to our brothers and sisters in our beloved homeland.
