Christina was snatched out of her mother's arms on August, 2014 by ISIS militants, as her mother desperately resisted. That was the last time her family had seen her until three years later (June, 2017), by what was described as a miraculous answer to the family's prayers and relentless efforts to track her down. Christina was delivered safely back home to her family, healthy and unharmed. A Muslim family had found her in a mosque in ISIS territory and taken care of her for three years. Today, Christina is smiling and happy at home with her family, although they are still living displaced. A generous donor gave her the gift of a new wardrobe as the school year began.
Saving an Endangered Culture
ISIS made every effort to destroy one of the oldest and most influential cultures in world history, bulldozing cemeteries, desecrating ancient churches and burning irreplaceable books. Without a country, the Assyrian Chaldean Syriac people are bombarded from every angle with Arab, Kurdish, Iranian, Syrian and western influences. Cultural preservation is important in their homeland, and Shlama commits to that effort.
