What We Believe

MISSION Shlama Foundation’s mission is to engage the diaspora to fund humanitarian aid and other community projects that will help the Assyrian Chaldean Syriac people live and prosper in their ancestral homeland.

VISION We envision a thriving homeland for the Assyrian Chaldean Syriac people that is strongly connected to the diaspora through the act of giving.


Compassionate, united and tech-savvy, the youthful zeal of Shlama has driven a culture of volunteerism in both the diaspora and the homeland, but Shlama's support comes from many countries, all ages, cultures and backgrounds.



Shlama is strictly non-political and humanitarian-focused. We have a humanitarian purpose that we believe everyone can agree on. We strive to be a model of cooperation with churches and NGOs, as we believe a collective effort will yield a synergistic effect


In a country where trust is of the utmost importance, we wanted to do everything we could to leave no doubt that we are there to serve the people. All donations spent are listed publicly on our Spending Sheets.

Quality of Life

We believe everyone has the right to live peacefully and with dignity. Shlama strives to improve the quality of life and instill hope in the Nineveh Plains through our various projects.


One of our most important values is bridging the gap between the diaspora and the homeland. Through the use of various media, Shlama provides those in the diaspora with an in depth look at the lives of people living throughout the homeland.
