Eid Ramadan Clothes for children

When you’re an orphan in Iraq, the most basic necessities can be hard to come by. Even harder to have are material things that would be considered common in any family, like nice and new clothes for your children. This is why ICHope volunteers try to grant orphans’ simple requests – and are able to, thanks to generous partners and supporters like you. 

We distributed an average of 178 clothing items by the end of Ramadan as a gift to girls in need and orphans.
