Help Iraqis to recover
“Who will lend Allah a good loan so that He can increase it many times?” (Qur’an, 2:245)
Across Iraq, 4.1 million people need humanitarian help. After years of violence, 2.4 million people need humanitarian help to access their food or livelihoods.
Many families have to resort to desperate extremes, selling what they depend of for their livelihoods - land and businesses – just to be able to buy food and survive.
Be a mercy to an Iraqi family and help support out Iraq Emergency Fund.
“He is not a believer whose stomach is filled while the neighbour to his side goes hungry.” (Al-Albani)
