The Knights of Columbus will expand its efforts for humanitarian aid to persecuted Christians with a national campaign to raise funds and foster awareness of the terrible suffering of Christians and others in the Middle East. As part of the K of C effort, a new commercial on the issue aired nationally (see it below). The Knights began their Christian Refugee Relief Fund in August 2014 with $1 million in matching funds that was quickly met and exceeded by its members and the public.
The humanitarian assistance provided has included new housing for those who have had to flee their homes, as well as support for medical facilities in areas flooded with Christian and other refugees. Those wishing to assist with the relief efforts can donate by visiting ChristiansAtRisk.org
