Merry Christmas and Happy New Year of 2018


We are in our last days of the year 2015 and in blessing days of Christmas as a sign of hope and new life.

The year of 2017 had been rich, unprecedented and important for our Chaldean-Syriac-Assyrian people and for all humanity. After years of exodus, migration and refuge, historical homeland of Nineveh Plains had been liberated and thus opening new chapter to our people to return to their homes. This is, actually, another phase of important process to undertake and assist our people.

During the next year of 2018, ESU will continues to work for the well being and future of Chaldean-Syriac-Assyrian people. Across European countries and institutions, we will work as much as possible to demands the rights for our people.

We extend our gratitude for all members, friends, and institutions and organisations which stand and support Chaldean-Syriac-Assyrian people.

In this regard, we wish you a merry Christmas and a new year of blessings, happiness and success.
