WHAT WE DO

They are known as ‘Saddam’s Widows’ – legacies of brutal chemical attacks killing over 180,000 Kurdish men and boys. Thick winter quilts are being provided to communities of bereaved. Typical cost: £20.

AsiaLink partners are involved in various ministries including leadership training through theological books in Arabic, evangelism and church-planting efforts. Typical cost: £25

The translation of the New Testament in Bahdini, one of the main Kurdish languages, has been finished and is now in the process of testing. We are delighted to be able to help local workers finish off this invaluable project. Typical cost: £50

Bible verse

He comes to judge the earth He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity - Psalm 98:9

Missions Quote

"If the Church is 'in Christ,' she is involved in mission. Her whole existence then has a missionary character. Her conduct as well as her words will convince the unbelievers and put their ignorance and stupidity to silence." - David Bosch
