Each year, on the Feast of St. Anthony of Padua (June 13th), The St. Anthony Messenger (magazine) has asked its readers to support a special collection of funds that, for the year 2004, were earmarked for the needy population of Iraq.  To help with this idea, those in charge of the magazine requested the collaboration of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum, with the aim of identifying projects in need of the most urgent support and insuring the greatest possible transparency in the effective utilization of the allotted finances.  In this way, it was possible to accomplish a number of projects totaling €345,000 for the Local Church in Baghdad and Mosul.
