Relief Campaign for 70 Families – Dohuk

On 1 September 2014, ACERO implemented a relief campaign for displaced Christian families currently residing in and around the area of the Ancient Church of the East in Dohuk.

Heading up the aid effort on the ground, Odisho Dawood, Chairman of ACERO’s Dohuk Chapter said; “Today we distributed food and hygiene equipment (15 pieces per family) for 70 families; 55 displaced families, 10 from Sindor and a further 5 from Alqosh.”

ACERO Secretary Andy Darmoo expressed his thanks to all those that donate, namely from Australia, United States, Canada and Europe.

ACERO will continue to use its full resources to support IDPs until the resolution of the current crisis and would like to thank ankawa.com for being present and taking pictures.

ACERO Responds to Escalated Conflict in Northern Iraq

The Assyrian Church of the East Relief Organisation (ACERO) has launched another urgent campaign in response to the conflict currently engulfing parts of Northern Iraq.

Aid and relief is being targeted to Christians fleeing towns and villages which were previously deemed to be safe in the Nineveh Plains.

ACERO’s Dohuk Chapter officials have visited the following displaced families and registered them to receive urgent aid:

–        35 families in Kani Balavi

–        32 families in Dehi

–        15 families in Dohuk

ACERO is currently in the process of registering other families at St George’s Church in Dohuk and in The Martyr’s Church in Semele. Some of the displaced families in these two locations are from the village of Bashiqa (located 18 kilometres from Mosul).

Contact has also been made with officials at St John’s Church in Ankawa and other areas where displaced Christians have sought refuge.

At the present time ACERO is providing mattresses, blankets, food parcels and in some special cases financial aid for medication and rent.

ACERO thanks its supporters for their tremendous generosity which has enabled us to provide aid instantly.

With much gratitude,

Andy Darmoo

Secretary

On Behalf of ACERO Trustees
