Easter among the refugees from Mosul (photo gallery)

Amadiya (AsiaNews) – Below are a collection of photographs of Holy Week and Easter celebrations among the refugees from Mosul and the Nineveh plain.  These are the men women and children who fled in the summer of 2014 as a result of the advance of the Islamic State and who still today are living in shelters in Iraqi Kurdistan. The photos were posted by Fr. Samir Youssef, an Iraqi priest of Amadiya, who has been on the front line in welcoming and aiding refugees. Fr Samir is also among the representatives of the campaign "Adopt a Christian from Mosul" launched by our agency to respond to the emergency, which continues today, to offer help to the Christian, Yazidi and Shia refugee families.
