Our troops live in small, humble dwellings where they train from early morning until after the sun sets. They secure village borders, taking shifts, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, rain or shine. We can support them with coats, boots, gloves, uniforms, utility vests and more. We have several security forces in the Nineveh Plains. It costs at least $4,000 to support each soldier's living expenses for a year. Since our people have been persecuted for so long, we have gained hope for survival by finally having troops to guard our villages. We hope that they will be able to continue their service to protect our communities for years to come. The soldiers are always there to help with community service, as well. We can always count on them to lend a strong hand to help us unload aid deliveries when we reach villages.
