Iraq and Syria Emergency Appeal Resources

"If you leave, what will happen to our people? For sure they will die." - Church leader, Iraq.

Over 24,000 Christian families in Iraq and Syria are now dependent on Open Doors for their survival. Without our support, it's difficult to see how these families will survive. Last year, thousands of families fled from the self-proclaimed Islamic State in Iraq, finding shelter in Kurdistan. Open Doors delivered emergency relief that has become a symbol of God's hope. Yet these families are still trapped, facing a harsh winter, reliant on others for food.

Please share the Iraq and Syria Emergency Appeal in your church. We've made some resources to help you.

Some of these resources are also available as downloads.

The churches emergency appeal pack contains the film and prayer PowerPoint on DVD, an A4 poster for your noticeboard, and a pack of 25 response leaflets. Please order more response leaflets so that everyone in your church can have one.

If you want to order more than 50 additional repsonse leaflets please call inspire on 01993 460015 or email them at
