Helpiraq.org was formed almost immediately after Isis took over the city of Mosul in June 2014. The organization originally began as an emergency relief fund. The two projects below were initiated as soon as the organization was formed in response to the urgent needs of the people who were forced out of their homes during that time.
$60,000 was wired through helpiraq from the St. Thomas Diocese to Bishop Bashar Warda for Immediate aid.
$80,000 was sent to Bishop Warda and Bishop Nona, $30k was sent as Immediate Aid for food, water and shelter, etc. $50k was sent as Cash assistance to families.
