Dominicans in Iraq ‘We have family in Iraq’

“We continue to share our daily struggle with you, hoping that our cry will reach the world… We entered the third week of displacement. Things are moving very slowly in terms of providing shelter, food, and necessities for the people. There are still people living in the streets… We are speaking about two minorities (Christian and Yezedians), who lost their land, their homes, their belongings, their jobs, their money, some have been separated from their families and loved ones, and all are persecuted because of their religion… It is hard to believe that this is happening in the 21st century.”
