About Abbas:

اقرا تفاصيل عن الطفل - عربي

Abbas is a 12 year old boy, born in 2011, and is currently enrolled in fifth grade in primary school and is doing great academically. He has 2 siblings, and they live with their grandmother after the father had passed away in 2020 due to cancer. The overwhelming burden of raising three children alone led Abbas’s mother to leave them under the care of their ailing grandmother. The family, residing in a rental home, faces severe financial hardships without any form of assistance or income.

Deprived of his father’s guidance on growing up, Abbas is confronted with the grim reality of sacrificing his childhood to support his grandmother and two younger sisters. This responsibility threatens to pull him away from his education prematurely.

However, there’s hope to change Abbas’s story through your sponsorship. By supporting Abbas, you provide a lifeline that could preserve his education and offer him a brighter future. Consider answering Abbas’s silent plea and sponsor him today to make a lasting difference in his life.

Iraqi Children’s Hope implements a strict and rigorous fund allocation system whereby funding is paid to the orphan guardian with proof of funds spent (receipts from grocery/food markets, clothing retailers, furniture/appliance retailers, home rent, etc.) validated by ongoing social service visits to confirm appropriate purchases. Due to our on-site team and volunteers, every family is regularly visited to ensure funds are directly supporting our beloved orphans. Our team in Washington D.C. (USA) regularly visits Iraq to ensure this operation and also to witness the beaming faces of the orphaned children receiving a new pair of glasses when they could not see the chalkboard, or a new pair of shoes because their feet were bleeding from inadequate shoes, or a family benefiting from a new bed who no longer have to sleep on concrete ground, etc.
If an orphan sponsor would like regular progress updates or correspondence with a beloved orphan, please do not hesitate to contact our team at, and appropriate arrangements will be made. Please note that we prioritize the well-being and safety of our orphans. Thus, sensitive information, such as a home address, may be withheld.
