IRAQ Governor of Basra: We will help the Iraqi Christians to return to their homeland - Asia News

by Joseph Mahmoud

Majid Al- Nasrawi met the Chaldean Patriarch and the new Bishop Habib Hormuz Al-Nofal. Governor promises land and work for those who return to the city. Mar Sako confirms Churches’ attention for the south of the country. The prelate promises commitment to peace and coexistence in the city and the region.

Baghdad ( AsiaNews) - We will help Christians to return to the province, giving them a piece of land to cultivate and creating job opportunities and development for those who have fled in the past because of violence and insecurity. This was underlined by the Shiite leader Majid Al- Nasrawi, Governor of Basra (in southern Iraq , on the border with Kuwait) since June 2013, during his meeting with His Beatitude Louis Raphael I Sako, Patriarch of the Chaldean Church as the local leaders. The summit (pictured) took place last week, in conjunction with the celebrations for the arrival of the new bishop (Hormuz Habib Al- Nofaly ) to the Diocese of Iraq. It was a moment of joy and celebration for the whole Christian community, who welcomed the new pastor during a Eucharistic celebration.
