To help enhance our humanitarian work amongst the victims of the conflict in the Middle East, the Order works in partnership with Samara’s Aid Appeal. This project was set up by Samara Levy to give practical assistance to the innocents suffering in northern Iraq: the women, elderly and young children who are frightened, cold and hungry in tents, churches, schools and abandoned buildings and struggling to survive the bitter winter.
Samara started in 2014 by collecting aid material for another charity and wanted to do more. She has grown from filling boxes of aid material and clothing to filling lorries and containers full. Her organization went from a single person doing the work to networking with 3-4 churches and having them act as staging areas to collect, perform quality control, package, catalogue and label everything.
