Mesopotamia Relief Foundation

Mission Statement

To stand in solidarity with Christian communities—and all communities—of northeastern Syria to help those negatively affected by the Syrian conflict and its ongoing effects. The survival of the Christian and Yezidi communities is particularly at risk, and we propose to carry out projects in the area that a) rebuild damaged infrastructure such as homes, churches, and utilities, b) offer assistance that encourages those who have left to return should they so choose, c) address economic and environmental factors in the area that threaten the long-term viability of life in the area, and d) promote positive relations between the communities of Syria, which is the only way for these communities to survive into the future. We will avoid discrimination based on political affiliation or views, will seek to avoid creating aid dependency, and will learn from both the successes and failures elsewhere in Syria and Iraq where there has been reconstruction following ISIS’s defeat.
