Where it all began

Who We Are

Noor Orphans Fund is made up of a team of enthusiastic and dedicated staff who work hard to ensure we adhere to our vision as a charity. Our central office is in Stanmore, Northwest London and we additionally operate offices in five cities throughout Iraq. Do get in touch anytime and our friendly staff will always be willing to answer any questions or discuss any new ideas!

Our History

Noor Orphans Fund is a charitable organisation supporting widows and orphans in Iraq. We are part of Noor Trust charity (registration number in England and Wales: 1089506). Our first charitable project was our Orphan Sponsorship Programme which we started to encourage our youth to get more involved with charity work by sponsoring orphans, this has now expanded to become our biggest project.

Since 2001, we have supported thousands of orphans and their families through our Orphan Sponsorship Programme which provides financial support to the families for basic living costs. Our beneficiaries also have access to healthcare and medical aid, housing support, educational and vocational support, winter appeals, food and clothing distribution.

We reach out to the most vulnerable families and provide them with a chance to improve their standards of living and break out of the poverty cycle.

Where We Operate

In a country devasted by years of brutal conflict and having to withstand great bouts of poverty, inevitable suffering has taken its toll on the people of Iraq. As a result of the continuing instability, perpetual violence, terrorist activity and chaos that has shattered Iraq, there is an enormous legacy of widows and orphans who are now fighting for survival. Iraqi children face an undesirable prospect to their longstanding wellbeing and, as the future generation, this will have an extensive effect on the entire country.

At Noor Orphans Fund we take pride in helping to empower communities in Iraq by providing widows and orphans with the basics to enhance their quality of life.  Your donations have helped in making a considerable impact as a result of various campaigns across the years. Through implementing water filters, sanitation, healthcare, education, vocational training and microfinance we were able to leave a lasting imprint on the lives of many people.

For almost 20 years we have been working from our office in London alongside our partners on the ground, in which we have managed to transform and save the lives of thousands of widows and orphans.

With the continuous help and support of our charitable donors we have been able to spread their generosity across many cities in Iraq, to name a few; Baghdad, Najaf, Karbala, Balad and Kirkuk.

Our aim in the near future is to spread our aid across the globe and to reach out to other vulnerable people in displaced areas and respond to the needs of communities worldwide.
