A Nation Yearning for Hope and Healing

In 2014, Northern Iraq was systematically targeted and attacked. Home to most of Iraq’s ethnic and religious minorities, more than 800,000 people (known as Daesh) were forcibly displaced. ISIS groups destroyed villages and cities. Thousands were killed, and thousands more were raped, trafficked (sold locally and abroad), or forced to become soldiers.

Today, most of the survivors are living in IDP (internally displaced persons) camps or refugee camps. Those living in the camps are severely in need of medical care, grief and trauma counseling, and skills training.

As we work towards establishing hope and healing within Iraq, we recognize that love is the only solution. “Love Iraq” is an ongoing effort to meet the vital, pressing needs of IDPs through local partnerships.

ELM is assisting in the transformation of these lives and communities. Over the next several years, ELM plans to conduct strategic outreach, train disciples, provide awareness training regarding human trafficking, and distribute much-needed resources among refugees and IDPs in collaboration with local government, organizations and churches. Our primary focus is to restore identity and hope to those who have been abused and tortured.

Join with us in restoring honor to a generation ravaged by war. Love Iraq!
