I just finished a meeting with William Warda, the head of the media in Arbil's, North Iraq.
He's agreed to provide advertising in North Iraq using North Iraq's media capabilities but he insists that the AAS-Iraq branch be given the job of collecting the money for Lina Nissan.
Rommel Moushi was also happy to assist in this worthy cause.
Both continously stated that our people in garbia are not ver rich and anything collected would be only symbolic.
They explained that the U.N. provides them with ration cards every month so that they can collect their monthly ration of wheat, rice, etc.
I also knew from my experience in living with here that these people don't eat meat on a daily basis and barely eek out a living over here.
I explaind that the act although not symbolic would actually be used to awaken our people in the West in order for them to provide assistance to Lina.
Assyrians in North Iraq, having suffered numerous wars and 11 years of sanctions are now starting to organise for the worldwide effort to help Lina Nissan.
