On ISIS’s Doorstep: Stories From the Frontlines

At this very moment, our World Help team is just arriving in Iraq, where ISIS has terrorized and displaced millions from their homes.

On this emergency trip, they will be working alongside our partners to assess our continued humanitarian response, distribute life-saving aid to families, evaluate the progress of our mobile medical clinics, and to raise our voices in solidarity to tell the stories of our persecuted brothers and sisters to the world.
