Canon Andrew White, vicar of St. George’s Anglican Church in Baghdad, and his organization, the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, have been on the front lines of helping displaced Iraqis who survive in the midst of the Islamic State’s violent assault on the region.
White recently told an international news agency that, the conditions on the ground in Iraq are “absolutely horrendous,” noting that 250,000 Christians have been displaced from their homes in Mosul, Nineveh and other locations; this figure, doesn’t include Yazidis or other minority group.
He said, “They are sheltering in the north and the mountains. They have nothing. They have lost their homes, they have lost their future. We are providing them with as much food as we can, as much help as we can.”
