OPERATION IRAQ
Projects Update

May 10, 2003

AssyrianChristians.com loaded one of the first trucks of relief supplies to go acorss the Iraq border on March 16, with 20 tons of Water/Food/Medical Supplies, which was featured on CNN on March 16 with Rhim Brahimi.

In addition, the Thuraya Satellite Telephone Company donated 10 Thuraya satellite telephones and 2,000 minutes of time so we could have people come for a one minute telephone call to their family to let them know they were alive.

To date we have done approximately 1,400 of these. The water was donated by HCI International - Human Concern International - and we delivered the water to Hospitals, to the slum area of Baghdad and to individuals, and continue to do so and another truck.

In addition, we brought in nearly 500 letters which we delivered and facilitated the telephone system and mail system of Iraq, and are doing many who call to give messages to their families.


Projects Update
April 15, 2003

Assyrianchristians.com has sent trucks with medical supplies, food, water and letters for family members leaving Amman shortly.

Due to the high security and extreme danger of the over-the-border situation we are keeping the exact time and date of the shipment confidential but all the paperwork has been completed, visas and other permissions and supplies have been received and we are proceeding. The supplies will be given out as needed through a previously set up distribution network.

We have three teams currently going - one we we have staff working in the Refugee Camp on the Iraq/Jordan Border, another working in Amman coordinating an assisting with Jordan relief efforts and the Baghdad Team which is preparting ot cross the border and re-establish our offices in Baghdad.

We would appreciate prayer and support for the ongoing project estimated to last about 6 months. During the Gulf War we had a similar project and were on the ground for one year.

In particular it is our most current informaton that the major areas of bombing in Baghdad appears to be in the Christian areas, so a big part of our work will be locating family members and confirming their safety as communiatioins have completely broken down.

Of particular significance is a large number of letters from family members we will be taking in to Iraq to distribute to family members to confirm their safety. One of the major problems in Iraq is the inability to call or mail to confirm the situation of family members within the country.

If you have a relatives in Iraq, please provide us information and we will do our best to trace your family members. During the Kobe, Japan Earthquake, we did so for nearly 3,000 people, and following the 9/11 tragedy we processed 1,000 requests of Japanese relatives seeking to locate family and friends in New York City.

Anyone with family of friends in Iraq can send a note to Assyrianchristians.com with the name of the family member, address, directions and message to convey and we will do our best to deliver the message and confirm the safety of the family members. Please be sure to include a telephone number so you can be contacted.
