“Where Is Our Place?” is a 35-minute documentary depicting the day-to-day lives of Christians in Iraq. It was created in 2016, just after Fr. Chris Bishop first went to Iraq to build relationships with our Christian brothers and sisters there. Other, shorter videos are linked on this Website. They document the projects and progress made since 2016.
SWIC’s project areas focus on education, restarting family farms in northern Iraq on the Nineveh Plains, and helping small business owners rebuild after devastation by ISIS. The COVID pandemic set many of the communities back again so our support is needed now more than ever.
Stand With Iraqi Christians offers the opportunity for schools, religious institutions, and other organizations to host a film screening of “Where Is Our Place?” as a fundraiser to provide financial support for Iraqi Christians, and to provide education about their plight. Sharing the story of what has happened to Iraqi Christians is a powerful way to raise awareness, awaken consciences, and motivate loving action so we can be a force for healing and support amid the devastation.
Organizations can learn about our support for both video screenings and formation events at churches by reaching out to us at email@example.com.
