Did you know this about the IW Knights of Columbus?

“The Knights of Columbus is giving a 30-day supply of food to 12,000 displaced or formerly displaced Christian families in northern Iraq to coincide with Christmas.

‘The Knights of Columbus is pleased to help bring a Merry Christmas to those displaced by ISIS or now returning home to recently liberated areas,’ said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson. ‘These Christians have lost everything for their faith, and we want them to know that they are not forgotten and that their sacrifices inspire us in our own faith.’

Valued at $840,000, the Christmas baskets contain food staples such as wheat, rice, beans and meat, along with cleaning supplies. With the assistance of the Chaldean Catholic Archdiocese of Erbil, the Knights’ gift will continue to be distributed to Syriac Catholic, Syriac Orthodox and Chaldean Catholic families, as well as Yazidis.

‘Even though we are still in a time of great uncertainty, the knowledge that our brothers in the Knights of Columbus are in solidarity with us, especially at this time of year, brings great comfort,’ said Archbishop Bashar Matti Warda of Erbil. ‘God bless them all.’

The Knights of Columbus has committed more than $17 million in aid to Christians and other religious minorities in the region since 2014.”
