Since June 10 2014 and the fall of Mosul to the terrorist forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the Assyrian Aid Society-Iraq and other Iraqi and international humanitarian organizations have been providing assistance to tens of thousands of people who have fled their homes and sought refuge in Erbil and Dohuk and elsewhere in the Kurdish province, often on foot and with only the clothes on their backs. The majority of these Internally Displaced Persons are religious minorities.

The Assyrian Aid Society-Iraq does not discriminate against anyone in need and seeking help, including Assyrians, also known as Chaldeans and Syriacs, as well as Yezidis, Turkmen, etc.
