Plight of Displaced Iraqis Remembered at Christmas
Plight of Displaced Iraqis Remembered at Christmas

December 23, 2015, Washington, DC – Iraqi Dominican Sister Ban Saeed, OP, and Adrian Dominican Sister Donna Markham, OP, were featured this morning on CNN to shed light on the Christian Iraqi refugees who have fled from ISIS. Watch the interview. YOU can help our ministerial efforts on behalf of the exiled and displaced people of Iraq! Visit www.1000CranesforIraq.org for more information. 

Sister Barbara Cervenka, OP, puts the finishing touches on one of the "1,000 cranes for Iraq" she has committed to paint.

Sister Barbara Cervenka, OP, who initiated the 1,000 Cranes for Iraq fund-raising project, continues to paint one crane each day – even while recovering from knee surgery. “Painting the cranes is particularly meaningful because of the connection to the work and struggles of our Dominican Sisters in Iraq,” she said. 

Sister Barbara added that Dominican Sisters and Associates, as well as the general public, have shown a tremendous response to the project. “People like to find a way to help other people who are in difficult situations, like the refugees in Iraq,” she said.
