In August 2014, terrorists of Daesh (ISIS) kidnapped the three-year-old Christina from the arms of her mother in Bakhdida, Northern Iraq. Since then her father, Khouder Ezzo, prayed every day the rosary asking for her return.
This day came on June 10, when the now six-year-old Christina was restored to her family, the Syrian Catholic priest, Father Ignatius Oggy, told Aid to the Church In Need. He calls this a “divine miracle”.
Christina was found by a Muslim family near a mosque in Mossul. The family took care of her, in order to return her after the war.
