AMECC Hosts Special Fundraising and Community Event for Iraqi Christians and Other Minorities

October 9, 2014


On October 9, 2014 in Oak Park, Michigan, a special fundraising event was held to support American Middle East Christians Congress (AMECC) programs for the Iraqi Christians and others who have recently been displaced and face a bleak present and near future.


Over 100 leaders from the American Middle East communities and other segments of American political, social, cultural, religious, and civic and civil rights society and organizations were invited to create a pan-American front to continue working politically, medically, humanitarianly, and socially to put at the forefront the plight of the Iraqi Christians and other minorities that the world seems to have forgotten and which other national and local events have overshadowed. Dr. Ramsay F. Dass, AMECC President, detailed the ongoing genocide and the political, humanitarian, and social crisis and a plan of action. 


Attendees pledged to work together with their communities and AMECC to continue addressing this issue on the national and international levels until this catastrophe is addressed.


The event was covered by national and international, including Middle East, media.


The displaced Iraqi Christians and other minorities will now face the coming months of severe Winter, increase in diseases, and a worsening social environment, such as schooling and basic health care.


AMECC will continue depending on you for your generous contributions and political, social, and humanitarian support. Please visit our Web site,

Iraq: Nineveh and surrounding Christian areas have been ethnically cleansed. Churches have been destroyed and desecrated. Old Christian religious manuscripts have been burnt. Hundreds of thousands of Christians and others have become emigrants and immigrants. The sick, elderly, infants, and pregnant women among them are facing human catastrophe and risk of real genocide. They need basic water, food, shelter, medicine, and others. The situation is going from bad to worse. International humanitarian support is lagging behind. Please help us save these innocent people from death. We hope it is not too late.

The Middle East Christians are facing challenges, persecution, and genocide. Hundreds of thousands of Middle East Christians have become homeless, alienated and destitute. Their persecution, their loss of civil and civic rights, has become the norm in many Middle East countries.

People of all faiths should be able to live together peacefully, with equal human, civic, and civil rights, and freedom of religion.
