Every day, thousands of Assyrians struggle to survive. The world’s first Christian nation faces yet another silent genocide. They have been forced to flee from their homes for fear of being tortured, raped, or killed. They have no “safe haven” to turn to and are forced to live as illegal immigrants throughout the Middle East. They are not allowed any basic civil or human rights, and they live in severe poverty.

The Assyrian Church of the East (ACERO) is a non-profit organization that donates funds raised directly towards helping needy Assyrian brothers and sisters in their desperate time of need. Their adopted countries have turned their backs because they are illegal refugees. But it is our duty to bring this tragedy into the light, and let the world know of their suffering. We must support these brothers and sisters in Christ, and assist them as much as possible. We must not let their sacrifices and suffering be in vain.

Details on how to make a generous donation to ACERO can be found on the ‘Donate’ page. Your generous donations assist them to purchase food, medicine, medical supplies, paying their rent, and ensuring the provision of other necessities that many of us take for granted.

Without your help, they will be forgotten. Without each and every one of our Assyrian brothers and sisters, the Assyrian nation will eventually be forgotten. These people need our help. The time to act is now!

“Blessed be Assyria – the Work of My hands.”

Isaiah 19:25
