No parent wants their child to go to bed hungry. But in Iraq, hundreds of thousands of children – and their families – do.
Since 2014, a staggering 3.4 million Iraqis have been forced to become refugees in their own country – leaving behind their homes, possessions, schools and jobs to flee ISIS violence.
Some have found refuge in sprawling camps. But 90% are still outside of these settlements, living wherever they can find space – in abandoned buildings, schools, mosques, churches, and even in cars by the side of the road. Every day is a constant struggle to find clean water, food and medicine.
Let's remind these families that they have not been forgotten by providing them with urgent food supplies.
Throughout the month of Ramadan we're raising funds to deliver food boxes to hungry families. Ramadan is a month of fellowship and giving, and breaking fast together is an important time to strengthen bonds of faith. But this year, Ramadan will be especially difficult in Iraq due to surging violence and the rise of ISIS.
Please join us in support of the millions of Iraqis who are suffering unimaginable hardship during this holy month.
Regardless of your faith or background, you can impact the lives of a family in need.
