As one of the founders of the American Foundation For Relief And Reconciliation In The Middle East (FRRME USA), I am proud of the work we are doing to assist displaced Christians in Iraq and Jordan. FRRME USA provides efficient, on-the-ground humanitarian assistance in the form of food, shelter, medical care and support with relocation. Our operations in Baghdad, Northern Iraq and Amman Jordan are helping thousands to recover from the shock and trauma of sectarian violence and to start a new life. We also support a medical and dental clinic in Baghdad that is open to all faiths and is a pillar of hope in that embattled city.
I have long admired the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, of which I first became aware while I was working in Baghdad, when FRRME America was under the extraordinary leadership of the Reverend Canon Dr. Andrew White, founding chairperson of FRRME America.
Canon White and FRRME America were working so very effectively to meet the spiritual--and temporal needs of many in Iraq, regardless of spiritual orientation.
St. George's Church in Baghdad was home to the largest assemblage of Christians in Iraq and adjoined a medical and dental clinic, offering free healthcare to many, Iraqis, regardless of religious orientation.
More recently, FRRME America has focused on meeting basic living needs, including housing, nutritional assistance, and education for many refugees. FRRME America's contributions are, and have long been, essential for many.
The work of FRRME America has been exceptionally important for the promotion of peace and reconciliation in the Middle East.
FRRME America needs and deserves our prayerful and tangible support.

Long-Time Admirer and Supporter of FRRME America
My wife and I are supporters because we have seen the good it is doing to help the Christians in Iraq and Jordan.
As a founding member of the American Foundation for Relief & Reconciliation in the Middle East (FRRME America) in 2009, it has been my extraordinary privilege to serve those who have been persecuted and marginalized by violence, poverty and war. With the rise of the so-called Islamic State, we went from being a small organization helping the needy primarily in Baghdad to a small but mighty organization with teams on the ground not only in Baghdad but in the north of Iraq and in Jordan, and our efforts currently reach Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and refugees across the Middle East, providing emergency aid, food, clothing, rent assistance, education and jobs training. While the physical caliphate has been defeated, the need is as great or greater than ever as many IDPs and refugees literally have lost everything, with their former homes and businesses destroyed.
