Juliana Taimoorazy

Founder, Iraqi Christian Relief Council

Juliana started the nonprofit organization to help foster awareness about the plight of the Iraqi Christians, and to raise funds to deliver food and medicine to Iraq.

After fleeing Iran in 1989 due to religious persecution, Juliana, an Assyrian Christian, received her graduate Degree in Instructional Design and worked as a Training and Development Specialist for Fortune 500 companies for several years.

In 2007, Juliana started to volunteer for Catholic Charities in Chicago and began mentoring young Iraqi Christian women arriving from refugee camps in Turkey and Syria. This led to the creation of the Iraqi Christian Relief Council.

Juliana’s philanthropic efforts have taken her to Washington, D.C. where she has advocated for persecuted Christians in the Middle East, meeting with the lawmakers in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
