Keeping you informed

Every Friday we publish our Weekly Media Summary which includes a selection of news stories about the region in which we work. Currently, we operate in northern Iraq, Baghdad and Amman. Unfortunately, much of the online news these days is behind paywalls but we will do our best to share content which is free to view.

This week’s media summary includes an article about how churches in northern Iraq are rebuilding towns and villages devastated by ISIS. Despite the security threat, Iraqi Christians are starting to return to their homes on the Nineveh Plain. There is also a heartening story about a restaurant in Amman called Ezwitti which is helping the poor by offering free meals to those who cannot afford it.
