According to details, already some 350 families of Christians who fled Mosul and the villages in the Plain of Nineveh have found shelter in Lebanon. Father Paul Karam, Head of Caritas Lebanon says, “The numbers continue to rise every day.”

He further detailed that these Christian refugees are provided with healthcare, food and primary necessities. However, he said “we are saddened by the fact that almost all of them have no intention of returning to their country: their desire is to emigrate, to leave the Middle East for ever. Sad to say this is the situation.”
