(Worthy News) - Thirty-seven Christian families fleeing from the Islamic State are being relocated to the Czech Republic.
Barnabas Aid and Foundation Generation 21 are working together to fund the flights and the first year costs of accommodating the refugees. The Christians will initially be housed in a refugee facility where they will receive language lessons; from there they will be assimilated into the Czech community with the aid of a network of local churches.
Most of the families had been forced to flee from towns in the Nineveh plain into camps in Erbil, Iraq.
