Distributing Clothes to Orphans on the Occasion of Eid Al-Adha

Distributing Clothes to Orphans on the Occasion of Eid Al-Adha

June 16, 2024

On the joyous occasion of Eid Al-Adha, Iraqi Children’s Hope once again brought smiles to the faces of orphans in Basra city. Through our dedicated volunteer branch in Basra, we distributed new clothes to the orphans registered within our program, ensuring they can celebrate this festive season with joy and dignity.

Eid Al-Adha is a time of giving, reflection, and community. At Iraqi Children’s Hope, we believe in extending the spirit of this holiday to those who need it most. Our efforts in Basra aimed to uplift the spirits of orphans, providing them with more than just clothing—but also a sense of belonging and care. These clothes symbolize more than material support; they represent hope, love, and the community’s commitment to nurturing the future of these children. 

As we reflect on this successful distribution, where our volunteers worked tirelessly to ensure each child received their new outfit and that each child felt a sense of excitement and sense of personal belonging, we are reminded of the impact of collective generosity.

We thank our donors and volunteers, who have shown unwavering support, and have allowed us to continue to make meaningful differences in the lives of the less privileged and underserved within Iraq. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to this initiative, and look forward to continuing on our mission of empowerment and support.

The Pillars Behind Our Success: Our Donors and Supporters
Our journey, though filled with heartwarming stories, is not one we tread alone. Every step we take is backed by the immense support we receive from our donors and supporters. The joy that these children experienced this Eid Al-Adha would not have been possible without each one of you.

Your belief in our vision, your generous contributions, and your unwavering support make all the difference. It’s a collaborative effort, where every donation, big or small, contributes to a larger narrative of hope, love, and unity.

A Heartfelt Thank You
From the depths of our hearts, we want to extend a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to everyone who has been a part of this journey. Your kindness not only helps provide materialistic comforts but also instills confidence, hope, and a sense of belonging in these young souls.

We look forward to continuing our mission, and with your continued support, we are hopeful that each year will bring more smiles, more warmth, and more joy to the lives of these precious children.

Distributing Eid Clothes to 52 Orphans

As the crescent moon rises and the celebratory spirit of Eid fills the air, our mission to support and uplift the lives of Iraq’s most vulnerable takes on renewed importance.

The festival of Eid is one of joy, celebration, and community. It’s a day when families come together, dress in their best clothes, and exchange gifts. In the spirit of this festivity, we were privileged to distribute Eid clothes to 52 beloved orphans. These children, despite the unfathomable adversities they’ve faced, greeted us with wide smiles and a hope that truly embodies the essence of Eid.

The distribution of Eid clothes is not just about providing new attire. It’s about giving these children a sense of belonging, making them feel loved, and ensuring they too can partake in the joyous moments that life has to offer.

A Call To Action

While our efforts have brought smiles to many, the journey is long and the need immense. We invite you, our global community, to join hands with us. Let’s work together to rewrite the narrative for Iraq’s orphans and ensure they grow up in a world filled with opportunities, love, and care.

As we wrap up this joyous day, our hearts swell with gratitude for the smiles we witnessed and the hope we were able to ignite.

 

To our 52 beloved children, we promise to stand by you, today and always. Eid Mubarak!

We thank Bayt al-Hikmah Legal Services & Consultancy for their support in helping us distribute these clothes.

Lighting Up Lives: Ramadan Food Baskets Distribution by Iraqi Children's Hope

April 15, 2023

The holy month of Ramadan is a time of reflection, spiritual growth, and unity. It’s a period where the spirit of giving takes precedence, illuminating lives with hope and compassion. At Iraqi Children’s Hope, our commitment during this sacred month has always been to ensure that no orphan or widow feels left out of the blessings Ramadan offers.

Feeding Souls and Hearts: 1600 Ramadan Food Baskets
This year, in our continuous endeavor to support those most in need, we distributed 1600 Ramadan food baskets, with approximately 400 being distributed weekly for 4 weeks. These were not just baskets filled with food essentials but were packed with love, care, and the spirit of sharing. Our primary beneficiaries were widows and orphans.

The Strength Behind Our Mission: Our Supporters
The essence of our work is deeply rooted in the community that stands with us. Every food basket, every smile, and every prayer answered is a direct result of the tireless support we receive from our believers and backers.

Our mission’s success hinges on those who resonate with our cause and choose to make a difference, be it through sharing our work, spreading the word, or opting for financial support. The truth remains: without our supporters, our reach would be limited, our impact lesser.

As we continue to strive for a brighter future for Iraq’s widows and orphans , we humbly ask for your continued support and blessings.

Ramadan Mubarak to all! Let us remember that the true essence of this holy month lies in sharing, caring, and uplifting those around us. Together, we can make a world of difference.

2022 Ramadan Food Drive

2022 Ramadan Food Drive

May 2, 2022

Ramadan presents a unique time for families in Iraq, who rely on humanitarian aid to properly celebrate the holy month with their loved ones. Every Ramadan season, Iraqi Children’s Hope provides food baskets to families in need. Hundreds of families were provided with food baskets in the Basra, Samawa and Baghdad cities this Ramadan.

Each basket contained basic food items such as cooking oil, rice, dates, flour, juice, and a variety of other items that would last a family for a while.

“The Ramadan food basket distribution project provided by I.C. HOPE had a great impact on the families that received the baskets”

Ahmad Manara, an I.C. HOPE field representative in Iraq.

“These families have been in need for years, and it was refreshing to see smiles on their faces as they were receiving their food baskets. We have received many calls and messages from beneficiaries thanking I.C. HOPE for their generous work. “Adding each Friday during the month of Ramadan, we provided hundreds of food baskets to needy families.”

Eid Ramadan Clothes for children

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 new clothes for your children. This is why volunteers at Iraqi Children’s Hope 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 orphans and children in need.

Attached below are images of the event.
