Islamic State Devastation  

As the battle continues for Mosul, the Islamic State's last major stronghold in Iraq, signs of the violence that ISIS wreaked on a nearby village remain. Since the Iraqi military began retaking Mosul on Oct. 17, 2016, more than 144,500 people have been displaced, most of them in desperate need, according to U.N. figures. A ministry based in Iraq is providing refugees in camps outside Mosul with food, clothes, medications, heaters, blankets, tents, clean water, infant formula and diapers, as well as Bibles and Christian coloring books. "We need almost everything," said the director of the ministry, which can purchase items locally. "Needs are not being met, and people are struggling. There are a lot of people and organizations helping, but it's like a drop of water in the sea."


Amazon Smile and Kroger: How a Little Can Go Along Way for Christian Aid Mission

Who doesn't shop on Amazon? But have you heard of AmazonSmile? It is a website operated by Amazon with the same selection of products and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price to Christian Aid Mission. All the benefits established from your Amazon account will transfer over. Bookmark the link http://smile.amazon.com/ch/52-0908482 and you can support us every time you shop.

In addition, Christian Aid has joined the Kroger Community Rewards Program! We receive a quarterly cash reward based on purchases by registered Kroger Plus members. If you (or your family, friends, etc.) have a Kroger Plus Card and you live in Virginia, North Carolina or parts of West Virginia and Tennessee, you can register at krogercommunityrewards.com with our name or with our ID number – 84177.

We appreciate all the ways you support our ministry!
