We are pleased to announce that over the last few months ACERO has launched and implemented an education and aid programme in the blessed city of Kirkuk.

Bible studies, language and arts and crafts classes have been held at the Assyrian Church of the East Parish of Mar Gewargis under the stewardship of the Rev. Fr. Gewargis Yosip.

ACERO has provided funding for transportation, books and supplies, snacks and toys in order to make it all possible. This culminated in a beautiful Christmas concert put on by the children for their families.

Financial aid was also distributed to families living in the area as the city is experiencing a very difficult economic period.

Rev. Fr. Gewargis Yosip has expressed his gratitude to all at ACERO, namely the executive committee, our Chairman Mar Afram Athneil and His Holiness Mar Gewargis III.

We are grateful to Rev. Fr. Gewargis and his team who have worked very hard to make this possible and for continuing to keep our language and culture alive in our homeland.
