AHC Background

Chaldean Archdiocese of Erbil’s Humanitarian Response

The IDPs who fled to Erbil and specifically Ankawa had to flee their homes in the middle of the night and were not able to take any of their belongings. ISIS burnt their homes, they stole their possession, they destroyed precious photographs of their lives and ancestors, and they took away their lives, livelihoods, and education for their children. The immediate response of the Chaldean Archbishop of Erbil was to seek international aid, from the Local and International agencies. This and other great actions from the community and its volunteers saved up to 13,000 families from a humanitarian crisis.
