I have a friend whose husband is serving in Iraq. He is asking help for the Christian refugees in Bartolla. If you have been checking the news lately you will know the Christians are being driven out of Mosul because of their religion. Instead of reciting prayers at the mosques, Muslims are announcing that all Christians must leave or be killed. The Christians are fleeing to a neighboring city, Bartolla, and are running out of food, clothing, etc.
Go to this link to find more information about what is happening, the things they need and how you can help. All they need is for you to clean out your closets and send it over. This would make a great family service project.
Even amidst all the political mumbo jumbo about the war in Iraq, let's not forget our heroes fighting over there as well as the Iraqi people.
