The Chairman's Report for December 2, 2019

/
Christmas programs have started in Lebanon … Jordan and Iraq are next / How we did in 2019 - Camp Gilead in Jordan received updated equipment / Diapers for Refugees expanded to include many elderly and special needs adults / Nigerian orphanage farm a success / West Bank programs expand!

Nigeria – Much accomplished in a very dangerous situation

/
Our biggest success of the year was the creation of a farm for the children to grow their own food. In July enough funds had been raised to make a commitment to provide protein for the rest of the year. These projects at the orphanage were in addition to the wells and water tower we had already paid for.

The Chairman's Report for November 15, 2019

/
Christmas for Refugees continues to expand in West Bank and Syria. / Christmas matching gift program better than expected! / Final harvest of the year at Nigerian orphanage farm. A huge success! / Our Kurdish “allies” pelt our departing troops with rotten fruit.

Demonstrations in Iraq and Lebanon endanger Christmas programs

/
Just in October, more than 250 Iraqis have died in protests aimed at forcing the entire government to resign. So far most of the protests have been in Baghdad and the southern parts of Iraq and not in the areas where we serve in the north. What does this mean for Christmas for Refugees events?

The Kurdish Crisis?

/
The city of Manjib in northeastern Syria has become a focal point for those who have attacked President Trump for pulling American troops from Syria. William J. Murray calls attention to the truths of what Christians are facing in Kurdish controlled areas.

The Chairman's Report for October 11, 2019

/
Murders of Christians in Nigeria increase / Our efforts with orphans continue / Christmas for Refugees matching gift fund will double gifts to program! / Changes in the Diapers for Refugees program / Special needs overwhelming / Why do so many youth and young adults in Iraq need adult diapers?

Shocking Need in Iraq For Special Needs Diapers Even For Young People

/
Why is there such a horrific need for adult special needs diapers in Iraq? I am beginning to understand the cause and it is not going to go away. Many of those born with neurological problems have high levels of uranium and thorium in their bodies. A lot of the ammunition we used in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan was made out of depleted uranium.

Nigeria: Murders of Christians Continue

/
The slaughter of Christians continues in Nigeria while Western leaders and Western media say nothing. Most are not even reported in the media in Nigeria. A Bright Spot: The orphanage children harvest corn.

Nigerian Farm Update

/
Just a few short months ago we invested just $7,000 to rent about five acres of land and buy seed, fertilizers and hand tools for the orphanage children to start their own farm. But the farm is a lot more than the food it is producing. The orphaned children are learning farming skills and reliance on themselves rather than on charity.

/
Stories of adults with special needs who are helped by Diapers for Refugees / Christmas for Refugees and Diapers for Refugees problems in December / Christmas in the Holy Land for Christian children again this year? / Hope and hate in Nigeria: Our farm prospers, but more Christians murdered

Remembering 911

/
Each of us will remember exactly where we were and what we were doing at the moment we heard about the Islamic Jihad attack against our nation on September 11th. On that fateful day I was on my way to Washington, DC to participate in the Sudan Peace Act press conference to be held at the Rayburn House Office Building at 10:00 a.m. that morning.

Holy Land Christmas

/
"I have seen the Christian civilization of the “West Bank” collapse and be replaced by those who hate Christians and work to steal what is left of their land. No matter what, we must continue the Christmas program in the “West Bank” which includes Bethlehem."

The Chairman's Report for August 23, 2019

First crop at orphanage farm … Children now have Irish potatoes! / Orphanage children receive reward for their work and gain experience / Christmas for Refugees: How many children will celebrate Christmas? / Diapers for Refugees program faces September and December deadlines

First Crops Harvested at Nigerian Orphanage Farm

/
Bag after bag of Irish potatoes have been harvested from the orphanage farm we sponsor. Every dime of the money was worth it!

The Chairman's Report for August 9, 2019

/
Our farm for orphanage in Nigeria preparing to yield first crop / No longer just plain gruel for children at the orphanage – We supply protein / Our forum with Boko Haram survivor a success in Washington / What was the real impact of the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom?

Our Event at the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom

/
On the first day of the multi-day event, the Religious Freedom Coalition, in conjunction with the Africa Conference of Christians, held an event featuring the sole survivor of a Sunni Muslim Boko Haram attack. Read about Ike and the rest of our event here.

The Story of Esther

/
Esther was among many survivors of religious persecution that the State Department brought to Washington, DC for the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom. Here is a fact: More Christians are murdered for their faith in Nigeria every year than all other killings based on religion in the entire world.

A Sole Survivor of a Boko Haram Attack Shares His Story

/
The Religious Freedom Coalition held an event during the multi-day Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom in Washington, D.C. The feature speaker at our event, Ike, is a sole survivor of a Boko Haram attack in Nigeria.

The Chairman's Report for July 12, 2019

Day by day description of an eight-day mission to the Middle East / Summer Camp improvements in Jordan for Christian youth / Day care center air conditioners installed and working well for children / Diaper program in Iraq well, but more adult diapers needed for infirm

Air Conditioning Units Installed in Bethlehem Day Care Center

/
Air conditioning units have been installed at the day care center in Bethlehem, just in time for the hot summer months. Christian children now have a cool, safe environment where they can learn more about God while their parents work.

Nigeria Orphanage Update

/
The generous supporters of the Religious Freedom Coalition have sent sufficient funds to also allow us to purchase protein for every child in the orphanage for three meals a day for the rest of the year! The growing farm keeps the children fed and allows them to learn farming as they take on self responsibility.

Charity Navigator joins Southern Poverty Law Center in the attack against the Religious Freedom Coalition

/
Charity Navigator takes dishonest and misleading measures to join the Southern Poverty Law Center in shining negative light on the Religious Freedom Coalition.

The Chairman's Report for June 21, 2019

/
We aid day care center near the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem / Christians were 86% of the population in “West Bank” – Now just 2% / Adult diaper program changing the lives of elderly in Iraq and Jordan / How did the United States ever begin supporting Sunni Muslim radicals?

Air Conditioning for Holy Land Day Care Center

/
A few weeks ago, I received distressing news about a day care center in Beit Sahour, a Christian area inside the Bethlehem “governate.” The day care, with 117 children age four and under, had only one of seven rooms with a working air conditioner.

Diapers for Refugees Update

/
I received the first request for adult diapers in 2018. Our team had been so centered on the babies and toddlers and their needs that the idea of adult diapers had never been considered. I did not think there would be a big demand for the adult diapers. I was wrong!

/
Saudi Arabia’s “royal” family exposes its evil heart to the world / Sunni Islam is the mother of almost all terror attacks against innocent people / Roof of chapel at Nigerian orphanage collapses – New farm being cleared / Making the case on Capitol Hill that Christians really do face persecution

Roof of Orphanage Chapel Collapses During Storm

/
Last year I visited the orphanage we support in Nigeria for Easter, and an Easter program was presented in the chapel while I was there. This year, during Easter week a powerful rain and wind storm completely destroyed the roof of the chapel.

Incredibly Evil Heart of Saudi Arabia

/
A young Saudi man was about to board a plane to America to pursue his education at the University of West Michigan when he was arrested, beaten for years, and recently beheaded. His crime? Favor of democracy. In this article, William J. Murray sheds light on the hard truth of Saudi terror that many have tried to keep under wraps for so long.

The Chairman's Report for April 26, 2019

/
Working on Capitol Hill to expose the murders of Christians in Nigeria / Senator Rand Paul will quote me in his new book on socialism / Food for Nigeria orphanage – Helping start a farm to feed themselves / Diapers for Refugees – More adult diapers for special needs elderly

A Farm for the Orphans in Nigeria

/
I received a proposal from the camp director to help rent two hectares of land and obtain supplies for a small farm for the older children to plant and grow some of their own food. A farm of this size cannot feed the 87 children that are currently in the orphanage. But the farm will do more than supply some of the needed food.

Remembering September 11th, 2001

/
I was on I-395 approaching the 14th Street bridge at the moment Islamic terrorists flew hijacked American Airlines 77 into the Pentagon. At the time I was literally on the phone with an assistant to President Bush talking about the jihad attack in New York City. I had been headed to a press conference in support of the Sudan Peace Act that the White House opposed. The Sudan Peace Act would have punished the Islamic Sudanese government economically for the continued persecution and mass murder of Christians in the South Sudan.
