On 30 August 2014, ACERO implemented a relief campaign for displaced Christian families currently residing in The Martyr’s Church of the Assyrian Church of the East in Semele. 

Food packages and supplies were distributed to 59 Christian families and 4 non-Christian families.

Present during the aid distribution was ACERO Secretary Mr Andy Darmoo who is visiting Iraq from the United Kingdom to review ACERO’s aid efforts.

Those displaced families present expressed their deep concern as to their situation with the forthcoming arrival of the winter season. All families remain unsure as to whether circumstances will exist to facilitate their repatriation to their ancestral towns and villages in the Nineveh Plains. They are gripped by a sense of fear, apprehension and confusion.

ACERO will continue to use its full resources to support IDPs until the resolution of the current crisis.
