This Ramadan, help Iraqis to recover
Indeed, those men and women who give in charity and lend to Allah a good loan will have it multiplied for them, and they will have an honourable reward. (Quran 57:18)
£60 give water, save a life
£70 provide iftar to a fasting family in Iraq for a month.
£150 safe spaces for vulnerable women and girls
Across Iraq, 6.7 million people need humanitarian help. After years of violence, around 1.5 million people are displaced within the country, and displaced families are struggling to cope with the collapse of living standards, access to basic necessities, like food and healthcare.
Many families resort to desperate extremes, selling what they depend of for their livelihoods - land and businesses – just to be able to buy food and survive.
With your help, we can change this, helping the most vulnerable Iraqis to support themselves through Ramadan and beyond.
Rebuilding Iraq this Ramadan
Our short-term project – Feed the Fasting – helps to support families in the immediate so that they don’t have to resort to selling away their livelihoods just to survive. It also strengthens communities against the spread of the virus by helping them to avoid leaving home for work during this critical time.
Our long-term projects help vulnerable Iraqis to overcome the obstacles in regaining their livelihoods and stability.
