IRAQ – Disabled Iraqi Christian Woman Overcomes Persecution

International Christian Concern | March 20, 2019

Although the reconstruction of Mosul is slow, following its three-year occupation by the Islamic State (ISIS), the city’s bustling university provides hope for the future. Many of the students commute into the city and their presence symbolizes the possibility of a future for areas in the Nineveh Plains once devastated by ISIS.

So when Mina Ragheed, a blind Christian woman and recent graduate from Mosul University, was offered and later denied a government appointment as a teacher, Christians were outraged. Displacement had shattered the hopes of many Christians for a future.
