Working with Iraqi Chaldean Christians

Zina Kiryakos of the Iraqi Christian Foundation meets with displaced Christians to take witness statements of the genocide against Chaldeans and Syriacs of Nineveh Plains, Iraq.


Iraqi Christian Foundation is an Eastern Christian charity (and 501(c)(3) U.S. tax-exempt org) founded by the Chaldean-Iraqi Christian community after ISIS’s targeting of Chaldean and Syriac Christians in Mosul and Nineveh Plains, Iraq. The Iraqi Christian Foundation provides aid to and advocates for the rights of persecuted Iraqi Christians, Syrian Christians, and other Middle East minorities.  In addition, the Foundation advances international policies for indigenous Middle East Christians that promote a more pluralistic, tolerant, and inclusive Middle East, with the aim of supporting the longevity of ancient Christian communities.
