The need

Syria and Iraq are still recovering from ISIS and war—Christians left the countries in droves, and many haven’t returned. There is real fear the church could “evaporate,” in the words of one church leader in the region where Christianity has been active for thousands of years.

Open Doors estimates that
1 million of the 1.8 million
Syrian Christians fled the country during the civil war.

And while there were 1.5 million Christians in Iraq in the early 1990s; we now estimate there to be around 200,000 believers.

ISIS wanted to destroy the church from the root,
and the question remains: Will they succeed?

The answer must be NO!

The campaign:

Our seven-year global campaign aims to restore hope to the church in the Middle East—so that they can be a source of hope to their communities, their countries, and their region. It’s about seeing the Church rise up to be salt and light in the Middle East once again.

We stand with our brothers and sisters in Iraq and Syria in many ways, including funding Centers of Hope such as Pastor George’s church, writing letters of encouragement, advocating for believers on the world stage and also by praying with them.

Stand with them.
Pray with them.

When Christians were deciding whether to stay or go during the Turkish Invasion, we were standing with them in prayer by posting their requests in the Open Doors mobile prayer app. The prayer app is an easy way to receive timely prayer requests from our brothers and sisters around the world.

Pray for your family today.
