Iraq Winter Emergency
100,000 Iraqis are out in the cold this winter
“Whoever saves the life of one, it is as if he saved the whole of mankind” (Qur’an 5:32)
£100 Winter Family Emergency Kit can provide a family with warm blankets, mattresses, stoves for heating, jerry cans for fuel, and soap, protecting them against winter and COVID-19.
Uprooted families. Destroyed livelihoods. Eroded communities. Limited access to services. It’s been another hard year in Iraq, with women and children suffering the most from hunger, poverty, and exploitation. Winter will bring even more hardship.
Iraq’s mountain region in the north has bitterly cold winters with temperatures regularly dropping below freezing at night. Heavy rains, severe storms and flash flooding make the cold season hard to endure for families living in tents and makeshift shelters. Please help protect Iraqis from the cold this winter.
Help us save lives
This winter, our Iraq office is supporting hundreds of families displaced by conflict, focusing on orphans and female-headed households in Ana, Anbar governorate and West Mosul, Ninewa. Our winter distribution contains bedding, heating and fuel. We are also distributing hygiene kits to protect against COVID-19, but we can do nothing without your help.
Iraqi families need our help this winter more than ever. Your donation can be the difference between life and death.
Winter kills. So please act now. Donate generously today.
