* This story written by "Preemptive Love Coalition", I liked to rewrite it and share here to inviting people to donate to provide lifesaving medical care and relief supplies.
Three stories about iraqi families in need, "Preemptive Love Coalition" asked Bloggers to share in their blogs, and here is one:
This is Isaac.
A kidney, both of his salaries, all his free time, his car, every room in his home, and even his own blood—these are just a few of the things Isaac, an Iraqi Christian, has given to support the struggling Iraqi Christian community in Baghdad.
When we sat with him in his living room, he listed the hardships Christians in Iraq have suffered. Isaac could barely talk before he was interrupted by cries of frustration from others in the room: “What are we going to do? We’ve lost everything!”, one woman wailed.
When the militant group known as ISIS or the Islamic State recently drove Iraqi Christians out of their ancestral homelands, many were forced out. But rather than fleeing to safety, many were forced to resettle in Baghdad, one of the most dangerous places for any minority.
This fire-to-frying-pan move has many Christians afraid and disconnected from one another, unable to speak Arabic, and without the paperwork necessary to get jobs or to leave the country.
Isaac has done everything he can for these families, even donating a kidney to a family member who was about to die! But he can’t keep going like this. At this rate, Isaac’s health will fail and the dozens of Christian families he is currently supporting will That’s where you come in. Our partners on the ground in Baghdad are ready to lift this burden off Isaac’s shoulders, to provide hundreds of Christians with the the supplies they need to survive the winter.
