In a text message this afternoon, RUN Ministries president Eric Watt shared that his teams of volunteers have now rescued 11,219 girls (all between the ages of 10 and 20 years old) from slavery. It’s an amazing accomplishment for a ministry that continues to care for and protect tens of thousands of ISIS survivors in northern Iraq.
Many of the girls have actually been purchased from “owners.” Members of Eric’s teams were able to literally buy back their freedom.
Others were rescued when their families were found hiding from ISIS terrorists in the mountains of northern Iraq. All are being spared from lives of abuse and servitude, while receiving food, clean water, shelter, and other much-needed essentials in RUN’s “Community of Hope” refugee camps and safe homes!
Eric also texted that his teams of volunteers are currently caring for and protecting 140 orphans. These young girls and boys all arrived at RUN’s refugee camps over the past three months with no mother or father. With no other relative to love and provide for them, RUN is meeting their every need.

These are just some of the examples of what RUN Ministries has been able to accomplish in northern Iraq with the help of Liberty Counsel Action friends.
If you haven’t made a donation to their rescue and relief efforts, it’s not too late. Even if you’ve donated several times, the stories above clearly indicate that your help is still desperately needed.
Despite the continuous threat of ISIS violence, RUN Ministries volunteers are working almost non-stop to provide desperately needed food, clean water, medicine, clothes, blankets, tents, and other relief supplies to more than 30,000 ISIS survivors.
Please help Eric and his teams of volunteers care for and protect Iraqi men, women, and children who have lost everything, even loved ones, to this horrific evil.
Thank you for your support. God bless you!
Chairman, Liberty Counsel Action
