Thank you for signing!

The One Million Voices
of Hope petition gets over 800,000 global signatures!

Over 800,000 people from 143 countries signed the petition in the last 18 months. Their signatures form a global cry, urging world leaders to ensure that Christians and others in Iraq and Syria are guaranteed the right to equal citizenship, dignified living conditions and a prominent role in reconciling and rebuilding society.

These calls come directly from the Christians of Iraq and Syria who long to stay and rebuild their community – continuing their 2,000 year history of contributing to the life of the region.

We know that at least 186,390 people have signed the petition from the UK and Ireland! Thank you so much for helping us reach this incredible number. If you signed it, if you shared it on social media, if you printed out a petition sheet and took it to your church – you have helped to show our church family in Iraq and Syria that they are not forgotten, and our leaders that they must not forget Christians and minorities in the Middle East either.

It’s the huge support that the petition has gained that has helped us to secure key meeting at the UN and with the UK government. In fact, Noeh himself will deliver the petition to the UN in New York!
