Shlama Foundation

Connecting the Diaspora to the Homeland

Shlama is the aramaic word for peace. Founded by American Chaldean Assyrian Syriac activists, The Shlama Foundation strives to connect our diaspora to the homeland through the act of giving.

The Shlama Foundation is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) based in the country of Iraq, currently aiding families who have fled to the Kurdish region after ISIS forced their evacuation from their cities and villages.

The mission of the organization is to provide our people with support in hope that they will be able to return to their homes in the Nineveh Plains and continue living in their ancestral homeland.
