Living day-to-day and not knowing whether there will be food on their plate tomorrow is the fate of most orphaned families in Iraq. Our food distribution project was borne from a desire to provide orphaned families with regular meals throughout the year. We have been using various means to attain this end.
Examples include food baskets in the months of Ramadan and Muharram, which contain a total of 16 essential foodstuffs, including rice, pulses, cooking oil, powdered milk, tea and sugar. For most of these needy families, meat is still a luxury they cannot normally afford, and they only have it when it is donated to them.
How you can help:
With your help, we can distribute baskets and meat amongst the families who need it most.
Another relevant initiative we run is to collect donations in order to take the orphans out for a day at a local restaurant. This is a rare treat for our sponsored orphans, and intended to provide them with much-needed recognition and pleasure in their otherwise tragedy-stricken lives.
