During his visit to Iraq, Pope Francis will support communities we are working with
Pope Francis is the first highest representative of the Catholic Church to ever visit Iraq. The trip will take place between 5th and 8th March 2021. He wants to support peaceful renovation of the country that not that long time ago was caught in a bloody conflict. Systematic violence against the Christian communities lead to hundreds of thousands of believers, especially from the Nineveh Plains, to leave the country. Personally supporting its renovation will be one of the goals of the visit. Caritas Czech republic has been working with refugees in the region helping them restore their livelihoods.
