Update: Syrian and Iraqi Orphan Rescue Project
Keith Davies Executive Director Rescue Christians
Today we started to document the first children we hope to transport to Spain and by early next week we should be ready for the Spanish government to initiate their request to the Turkish government to grant them exit. The Spanish Embassy will provide the visas to enable the Children enter their country.
Regarding the many requests for adoption that we are getting: please be patient on this as we need to do one thing at a time. We first need to have the children in our custody in Spain or other European countries. It is the intention of the Spanish government to make this an issue for the European Union countries to help as a whole. How we bring in the other countries to help we yet have no exact plan but I will be going to meet the minister(s) in Spain along with our Spanish partners to discuss a plan of action to save the rest of the children as soon as the first hundred children have been safely taken to Spain. Please try not to email us about adoption, we will post a directive and advice on the blog as soon as we have a definitive plan.
What would be welcome is your prayers and your financial support as the project is a massive one and if successful, please G-d, it will be one of the biggest rescue missions accomplished since World War 2. Once the children have been taken care of we will then turn our attention to rescue the thousands of families stuck in Turkey and Kurdistan. We already have those plans in place and ready to act but we have chosen to temporarily focus on the orphans first.
If anyone of our readers/donors has strong connections in the aviation business or luxury cruise business please contact me at [email protected]
We will continue to keep you updated as things progress.
Finally let me say that we at Forum for Middle East Understanding (the charity that runs Shoebat and Rescue Christians) are deeply grateful to you out there who support us with encouragement, prayers and the resources to do this work. We thank also our partners in Spain and the Spanish government. We are deeply humbled that G-d has chosen us to do this work.
