    The Knights of Columbus donated an additional $1.9 million in humanitarian aid as it continues to support the Christian refugees in the Middle East, reports LifeZette.

    “A year ago, our country declared with one voice that genocide was occurring to Christians and other religious minority communities, but words are not enough.” Carl Anderson, CEO Knights of Columbus

    The newest humanitarian aid includes support for medical clinics in Iraq, general relief for the Christians of Aleppo, Syria via the city’s Melkite Archdiocese, and support for other religious minorities in the Middle East. The organization has donated over $12 million since 2014 in support of persecuted Christians.

    In a statement, Knights of Columbus CEO Carl Anderson said, “A year ago, our country declared with one voice that genocide was occurring to Christians and other religious minority communities, but words are not enough.”

    The Knights of Columbus submitted a 300-page report to former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry last year disclosing that Muslim extremist group ISIS was committing genocide against Christians in the Middle East. The report provided evidence of various crimes against non-Muslims, including kidnapping, sexual exploitation, forced conversion and murder.

    “Those targeted for genocide continue to need our assistance, especially since many have received no funding from the U.S. government or from the United Nations,” CEO Anderson said.
