Christian and Muslim doctors work side-by-side to treat the sick regardless of age, gender or religious affiliation. We are the main funders of St George’s medical clinic in Baghdad, which provides free health care for over 1,500 patients every month. Treatments cover six essential areas: gynaecology, paediatrics, internal medicine, respiratory problems, rheumatology and dental care.
All ages are cared for, from pre-natal to seniors. The huge variety of treatments can be seen in the statistics which can be downloaded below. All the activities in the St George’s compound come under the auspices of the Anglican Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf.
St George’s Church, Baghdad demonstrates an inspiring holistic ministry to people of all faiths. They are living the gospel of Jesus Christ, reaching well beyond the church walls with practical expressions of Christian love. The Church provides educational, medical and employment support to thousands of non-christians.
Their compound in central Baghdad contains a medical clinic, a kindergarten, a primary school, a cultural centre and a family relief programme, all overseen by Rev'd. Canon Faez Jirjees. Rev'd. Faez has been recognised by the Iraqi and British governments for his extraordinary reconciliation and humanitarian work. Mosaic Middle East funds his wonderful ministry and support up to 15 seriously vulnerable families with food and rent relief each month.
This programme provides desperately needed jobs for people returning to their communities that had been devastated by ISIS. In the Nineveh Plain of northern Iraq, we are working with local communities and their leaders to develop new businesses and livelihoods. By February 2022 seventeen projects were completed benefitting 130 families. “They gave me hope and the capability to restore this farm” - Raed, Chicken Farmer, Qaraqosh on the Nineveh Plain.
Mosaic Middle East work with people of all beliefs, with a particular emphasis on adherents to Christianity which is at existential risk in the Middle East. We meet with government officials in the UK, Iraq and Jordan to advocate for their needs and those of minorities including Yazidis, working in co-operation and partnership with those organisations who share this objective. This includes the All Party Parliamentary Group for the International Freedom of Religion and Belief. Mosaic Middle East contributed vital data to the Bishop of Truro's Independent Review into the Support for Persecuted Christians Worldwide, which included 4 evidence submissions obtained from senior Iraqi Christian leaders.
