Diapers for Refugees has been committed to serving the Christian victims of radical Islam since 2016. To understand the influence your support has made through this program, please read this story from an 86-year-old man with paralyzed legs who receives adult diapers from our Diapers for Refugees program.
“I love to state my gratitude for your help, I want to ask you to keep providing this kind of help, because I can’t afford the diapers for myself due to my disability and illness. I am aged patient, but with the diapers I can sleep properly in my home with a proper life.
I am satisfied with what God done for me that He made me be able to return back to my hometown when the Daesh (ISIS) were defeated. I believe that God didn’t forget me.
I love my hometown and my church which my father, the village families, and I helped to build Al-Tahera church that’s why I will never leave it; part of my life. I decided to stay here in Qaraqosh till I die.”
The man, who we will call Matthew, was helped to escape as the Islamic State overran the Nineveh Plain. He was cared for in a camp for displaced persons in Erbil but insisted on returning to his native town of Qaraqosh.
Many have returned with him to ancestral homes on the Nineveh Plain including young families who now have babies and toddlers. They are returning to looted and destroyed homes.
This ministry is blessed to have the opportunity to make a very real impact on Christians who have suffered loss and humiliation.
You see, the Religious Freedom Coalition provides diapers every month, not just to disabled elderly, but directly to 1,080 babies and toddlers of Christian mothers in the Nineveh Plain area of Iraq.
This note from the mother of four-month-old Jeenil Waad Moses from Bartilla encourages us to work to do even more.
“I have been recieved diapers for three times, one time monthly… I was not able to buy diapers for my daughter since the day of her birth.
I was very happy once I saw your team members and I felt that God didn’t forget us even though our house is destroyed and we do not even have a bed to sleep on.
Your team visit means a lot for us and make a huge difference in our lives.”
By supplying these mothers and babies with diapers, we are strengthening their faith in Christ and proving that they can trust in God to provide for their babies’ needs!
The joy this program provides for these displaced Christian mothers is evident in their smiles. To show your support to this growing program and to do your part to come alongside our brothers and sisters in need, please help by donating today!
