Christian refugees share their plight after being persecuted in Iraq

Since the month of August, Church bells have gone silent in Iraqi cities controlled by ISIS. There is one town though, where that mold has been broken.  In the border town of Alqosh, near Mosul, bells ring loud, as locals yearn for peace.
A campaign titled ‘Alqosh Bells’ is shedding light the plight ┬árefugees like Mubarak and Aneesa Hano are facing. They managed to escape, but like thousands, their troubles are far from over.
You can see and hear their stories when they met with Pope Francis. Please click here.
