Most of the estimated 1 million people fleeing an imminent attack on Mosul, Iraq are expected to be women and children, and a ministry based in Iraq seeks assistance to purchase food, Bibles and supplies in preparation for the bereaved and needy multitudes. "We are currently trying our best to serve about 1,600 families that have monthly food needs, and we are expecting a large number of refugees coming to Kurdistan, north Iraq, from Mosul in the coming months," the ministry director said. Besides 10,000 food packages costing $15 each, the ministry plans to distribute 40,000 children's Bibles in Arabic and Kurdish ($5 each) and 30,000 New Testaments ($2 each). "Humanitarian aid will help us extend the hand of mercy to the people who need it with the message of healing and salvation to people with a lot of stories and tragedies that will result from this war," he said. "It will give us the keys to open doors of opportunities to witness about Christ."
