Iraq: Help and Hope

The ultimatum is grim: convert to Islam or die.

Fleeing their homes by the hundreds of thousands, Iraqi Christians and other minorities are running for their lives as the radical jihadist army ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) advances.

Men, women and children alike are being slaughtered and driven from their homes. Many who are not killed by militants are facing death in the wilderness due to exposure and starvation.

But there is something you can do!

Haven Ministries is partnering with Samaritan’s Purse to bring relief to the Iraqi and Syrian refugees looking for food, shelter and safety in the Kurdish region of Iraq. Through local partnerships and logistical supply lines, thousands of lives are being saved, yet the number of refugees is growing rapidly!

How You Can Help


  • for God’s miraculous intervention in the lives of those who are facing death today.
  • for international intervention to stop the bloodshed and reign of terror.
  • for those who are being “Christ’s hands and feet” on the ground in Iraq distributing shelter, food, medical care and other forms of relief.


As has been our decades-long commitment, Haven Ministries will not keep a dime designated for relief efforts. All dollars given will be routed to relief efforts through Samaritan’s Purse.
