Mosaic Middle East and our sister charity in the US, The American Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, provide funding of over £200,000 each year. The inspiring work at St George’s is enabled by your prayers, donations, grants and legacies. This provides the clinic's medical services, support for the ministry of Rev'd Faez and vital relief to families without any other help.
Rev'd. Canon Faez has been recognised by the Iraqi and British governments for his extraordinary reconciliation and humanitarian work. He has excellent relationships with leaders from across the sectarian divide, including Sunni, Shia, Yazidi, Shabak and of course leaders from other Christian denominations. In July 2020 he was honoured with the award of an MBE by Her Majesty the Queen.
In a country riven by sectarianism, Christian and Muslim doctors work side-by-side to treat the sick regardless of age, gender or religious affiliation. The team, which also includes pharmacists and dentists, work under the threat of recrimination. With your financial support, St George’s Clinic treats over 1,500 patients FREE every month, regardless of ethnicity or religious affiliation.
- Pray for the St George’s Clinic. For the team of doctors and nurses who work there; for patience, clear-thinking and good teamwork, despite the current pressures of coronavirus.
- Pray for the people the Church and Clinic serve. These include some of the most vulnerable, the sick, the local refugee population. Pray for peace and prosperity to return in hearts and minds and for the practical, emotional and spiritual help they need.
- Pray for protection for the church attendees, the staff of the Clinic and Church and the wider community as they live and work in what remains a volatile city.
- Pray for Rev'd Canon Faez Jirjees at St George’s. Thank God for his ministry and leadership. Pray for strength, wisdom and peace for him and his family.
