Statement of Adrian Dominican Sisters on Third Anniversary of Internal Displacement of Iraqi Citizens
Statement of Adrian Dominican Sisters on Third Anniversary of Internal Displacement of Iraqi Citizens

August 6, 2017, Adrian, Michigan – The General Council of the Adrian Dominican Sisters issued the following statement on the third anniversary of the flight of Iraqi Dominican Sisters and their neighbors from ISIS.

Three years ago today, our Iraqi Dominican Sisters and their neighbors in the towns and villages of the Nineveh Plain fled their homes and livelihoods with little more than the clothes on their backs in the wake of a brutal ISIS attack. For three years, tens of thousands of men, women, and children have been living in tents, trailers, and refugee camps in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq with few resources, great uncertainty and fear. Now, as ISIS is being repelled and vanquished from their hometowns and villages, rubble and ruin is what remains.

As we strain to put ourselves in their situation, we cry out in lamentation. Please join us in taking time to reflect on the events that have led to this heartache. We have family in Iraq


If you wish to assist the Congregation’s ministerial efforts in support of our Iraqi Dominican Sisters and their work to aid the displaced people of Iraq, please consider making a contribution through the “1000 Cranes for Iraq” project.
