IRAQ – HUMANITARIAN NEED 2014-2015
Our world is facing the greatest humanitarian crisis in modern history. Restore a Child has partnered with Hope4Iraq to be a compassionate, holistic and comprehensive humanitarian response to that crisis, offering hope and healing to the victims of brutality and violence in this conflict.
2.8 million people require food assistance in Iraq. Most of Iraq’s wheat production comes from volatile regions in the northern part of the country and nearly all of Iraq’s water resources flow through areas under the control of the armed groups, making access to food and water very difficult. Your generous gifts will be used to supply food and water, baby items and medical care for women and children escaping violence.
In the last 12 months more than 2000 families—nearly 100,000 people—have entered the district where Global Hope works. Geographical limitations and population saturation in the region’s largest cities have created supply shortages and distribution problems that have left many of these families with little or no assistance. Join in and sponsor a monthly life-saving parcel for a displaced family in need.
More than half of all displaced people in this conflict are children. Now living in camps and abandoned buildings, tens of thousands of children sit idly with no access to education, productive activity or play. The joy and innocence of just “being a kid” has been lost to instability and uncertainty. More than 1200 of the region’s schools have been converted to temporary housing for displaced people, and now more than 950,000 children are in need of on-going education. Ethnic and linguistic challenges make language-appropriate education nearly inaccessible.
But…here’s the good news! In partnership with the Freedom Center, Global Hope’s 25,000 sq. ft. community and education center, together we are providing the first and only school available to serve children from more than 2000 displaced families. 200 children are ready and waiting to get back to school, and you can help make it happen!
Sponsor a child’s education and give them a hopeful future. Sponsor their Future.
